Professional Interests and Expertise
My professional interests center around women’s health and skin care concerns. While I am not a gynecologist or dermatologist, I respect and have a great deal of interest in those fields.
Inspiration for Going into Medicine
Since high school, I had an interest in the medical field. This grew overtime while I worked as a medical receptionist and office assistant at the University of Alabama Medical Center while I was studying my undergraduate degree. During that time, I experienced various aspects of the medical field and my interest in direct patient care developed. While working in that position, my boss, Amelia, took interest in my career goals and encouraged me to pursue a medical degree. I will always be thankful that she recognized something in me and helped me accomplish a goal I did not realize I had at the time.
My main interests are reading and outdoor activities. Whether it is yardwork on the weekend with my husband or biking with our fearless dog, Riley, if the sun is out, my preference is to be outdoors soaking up vitamin D.
