Undergrad School: Mississippi State University
Medical School: University of Mississippi Medical School

Why did you choose UMMC?: I chose to stay at UMC because being from Mississippi and specifically the Jackson area, I have been able to see firsthand how amazing UMC and Batson is for the community and children of Mississippi. I wanted to be part of the amazing legacy Batson has to offer, and I knew that I would get a top-notch education and all of the experience one could ask for in a residency here at UMC. Also, the family atmosphere here is like no other!
Career Interest
I love general community pediatrics, but I also love neonates, so I could potentially see a future in the NICU or nursery setting! I also have an interest in non-operative orthopedics, so hopefully the next three years will guide me one way or another.

What makes you unique?
I married my high school sweetheart! I was a competitive gymnast for 10 years and had 9 serious injuries, including 7 fractures. If I wasn’t a physician, I would work in the fashion industry or interior design.

What you like to do in free time?
Good food, traveling, snow skiing, boating, spending time with my husband & our snuggly pup Luna, hanging out with friends, and going to Starkville for MSU games.
