I grew up in a small down in East Tennessee and attended Lincoln Memorial University Debusk College of Osteopathic Medicine. I have always wanted to be a doctor and dreamed of staying in East Tennessee. I was blessed with my daughter, Lilli, as a third year medical student and always wanted to be part of a family friendly profession. I fell in love with family medicine but enjoy the pace and procedures of the emergency room. While in residency at Bristol, I have been able to explore the possibilities of emergency medicine and plan on staying in the area and working Rural ER post-residency. In my free time I enjoy being with my daughter, hiking, kayaking and doing anything outside.
