I am a board-certified family medicine physician with professional interests in diabetes, dermatological issues, adolescent care, preventive care and end-of-life-planning.
Hometown: Rogers, Arkansas
Practice philosophy: To educate my patients, and to empower them to take control and be involved in their healthcare.
If I wasn't a physician, I would be a: teacher, because I enjoy encouraging others to fulfill their potential.
One challenge of this career that I enjoy is: discussing end-of-life care and goals because it makes an already trying time in a family’s life less difficult. It provides families time to grieve rather than worrying what to do or what their loved one would want.
The best thing I have done for my health is: finding an exercise routine I enjoy made it a lot easier to stay motivated. I also have adopted a more plant-based diet.
I am most proud of: the birth of my daughter in 2019.
