I would like to give you all brief introduction and some insight into my personal life. I was born and raised in Northeast Georgia. My family and I enjoy traveling and spending quality time together as much as possible. I have always loved caring for others, I feel this is exactly what I was born to do. My favorite quote by Winston Churchill is, ?We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give?.

I became a registered nurse in 2010 and decided to further my career by obtaining a master?s degree in nursing. I ultimately became a family nurse practitioner with a focus in adult and geriatric acute care while I practiced in a hospital setting for eight years. During that time, I was given the opportunity to provide medical care for psychiatric patients on an inpatient psychiatric unit. I immediately recognized the need for strong medical support for psychiatric patients and believe that focusing on improved physical health is of utmost importance to improve mental health.

Because I am an internal medicine trained provider, I have a unique role at Psychiatric Professionals of Georgia. Our goal will be to bridge the gap between your psychiatrist and your primary care provider by coordinating care with both providers. In turn, this will provide our patients with optimal treatment plans. I look forward to working with you.
