She has 10 + years of experience delivering dedicated and excellent patient care. Patients and colleagues, alike, often admire her ability to be calm, empathetic, and thorough even while being at the forefront of medical emergencies. Her interests extends beyond the bedside into academics, and she was a well respected Associate Professor for medical students during her time at UNC Wayne Memorial Hospital in North Carolina. She has been practicing in Florida since 2016, and bravely cared for patients on the frontlines from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. From her experience in the hospital setting, she recognizes the need for primary care physicians to lead long-term care for patients.
