THREE FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
- Faith is something that is very important to me, and I enjoy going to church on the weekends.
- I am the middle child of two sisters and grew up in Virginia Beach, VA. I love going back to Virginia to visit my family and the beach.
- I am a huge sports fan, especially basketball and football. My teams are the Dallas Cowboys and of course the UVA Cavaliers since I am a “Double Hoo”. I also love puzzles of ALL kinds and do a crossword every day and almost always have a jigsaw going. Disney puzzles are my favorite!
WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR JOB?
I have always loved working with kids and spent high school and college summers working all kinds of summer camps before I become a pediatrician.
