About Me

I am a family physician with South Broward Community Health Services, where I provide comprehensive care for patients that addresses all of their health concerns and needs. I also specialize in women’s health services and provide care for geriatric patients.

My goal is to get to know you as a patient and a person. I want to help you reach your optimal health so that you can live your best life. I am a big proponent of functional medicine, which explores how genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors can influence health and disease. Together, we can find the right blend of medical treatments, supplements and lifestyle changes to help you reach your goals.

Before joining Memorial, my husband – who is an OBGYN physician – and I ran a private practice in Georgia for 14 years. We're excited to now be a part of the Memorial family, where we have the support needed to focus on providing the best care for our patients. Our patients also have easy access to a wide variety of specialists and services within the robust system.

My husband and I have raised three children, who are now adults. As a parent, I understand the challenges facing families today, and enjoy getting to provide care and support as they grow and change through the years.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, traveling and reading books.
