Born in New York state, I moved to Murfreesboro as a young child and graduated from Oakland High School in Murfreesboro.  I started my career as a dermatology nurse at Vanderbilt Medical Center.  I later obtained my Masters of Nursing fromTennessee State University.  I reside in Murfreesboro with my husband and family.

Once I began working in dermatology, I knew I wanted to continue in this field.  Dermatology is challenging and an interesting blend of clinical care and aesthetic services with so many new medications and treatments for skin conditions being approved on a nearly constant basis, it is essential that medical professionals continually grow their knowledge as to offer the latest technology and care to patients.
