WHO I AM
I am the wife of a pilot-turned-preacher, the happy mom of three terrific children, and have been a physician leader for twenty-five years. My life was transformed years ago through a heartfelt prayer. Since then, my work as a physician turned into a ministry as I learned to care for people from the heart. I strive to care for the soul and minister to the spirit while treating the body.
I served as chief resident and as president of the Florida Association of Family Medicine Residents. I have served two terms on the Board of Directors of the Florida Academy of Family Physicians and chair the FAFP Physician Wellness initiative. I am a graduate of the Florida Medical Association Leadership Academy and assisted the 2018 launch of the FMA’s statewide Healthy Living initiative. I am passionate about Helping Docs Thrive™ in the midst of a broken system in constant flux and feel blessed by the many opportunities I have to enhance physician wellness and prevent burnout at the state and national level.
