  • I am an FNP practicing in my hometown of Sandersville Georgia. I am interested in providing treatment of disease and promoting overall health and well being for patients in underserved areas. My areas of interest are mental illness and heart disease. I was elected Associate Fellow American College of Cardiology in 2017 and took my oath in 2018. My mission is to diminish disparities in healthcare and prevent marginalization of those without healthcare coverage. I am persuing my dual executive DNP/ MPH at Johns Hopkins University with the goal of improving community understanding regarding appropriate utilization of care and improving access to mental healthcare in rural areas.
