From the Doctor

I grew up in Jacksonville, graduating from the Bolles School and returned after completing my training in oncology. My husband, daughter, son and I enjoy traveling around the world. Locally, we raise butterflies and are engaged in saving our beautiful St. Johns River.

My philosophy is to be a compassionate listener for my patients. I am here to walk the journey with them and make them feel more knowledgeable about their diagnosis and options

I give back to the community in several ways. I co-founded the Pink Ribbon Symposium, a breast cancer non-profit educational group and volunteer with Buddy Check 12 as a social media administrator. I am also actively involved in my children’s schools and in educating the local youth about making healthy choices. At Baptist, I serve on the Women in Medicine Board and additionally serve on the Duval County Medical Society, Florida Medical Association and the Indo-American Medical Association
