Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist?
Answer: I came here after serving eight years in the Air Force. My last assignment had been as a faculty member in the Department of Family Medicine at the Uniformed Services University (the military's medical school), and I discovered I really loved teaching medical students. Coming to Wake Forest Baptist was a great overall match.
Q: What are your clinical specialties?
A: I am board-certified in Family Medicine. I also have a master’s degree in Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services Research.
Q: What is your patient care philosophy?
A: It is my responsibility to provide my patients with the best information about screening, treatment and prevention. I also try to encourage each patient to pursue a healthy lifestyle. By doing so, a patient can take advantage of the body’s natural ability to heal itself and, therefore, remain as healthy as possible throughout his or her life.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working with patients?
A: The long-term relationships I forge with my patients. As a family physician who is trained to provide care from “cradle to grave,” long-term relationships are central to the way I practice medicine and a privilege.
Q: What type of volunteer and/or community activities are you involved in?
A: My three teenage children keep my off-duty time occupied. When I'm not attending their various school and sporting events, I assist with food drives through my church.
Q: What fun facts should we know about you?
A: I am a computer geek, especially all things Mac!
