I also am on the board of Centering Healthcare Institute, a nonprofit organization seeking to increase the role of group visits in health care. Whenever possible, I try to help at my children's schools and at church, too.
Q: What fun facts should we know about you?
A: I love to cook (and eat!), and I love music. I'm also an amateur gardener and guitar player.

Very good provider, I just don't know her very well yet.
Dr. Strickland goes out of her way, above and beyond, to provide the best care possible. I'm so appreciative!
I will never go to any other doctors than WFP they are so great. Thank you for every thing you do for us.
Dr. Strickland is the by far the best provider I have had the pleasure to be the patient of in my life. Her bedside manner far exceeded any expectations I ever had, and she puts her patients at ease. She makes all of the patients feel warranted in how they feel and she listens so well.
Dr. Strickland consistently goes above and beyond for me and my care. On two separate occassions she has gone out of her way to create appointments for me, just to ease my mind. It was so wonderful of her to be willing to see me to try to do the Doppler heartbeat again, even though she could have had me wait until my next prenatal appointment in a month. When the doppler still didn't work, she did not hesitate to break out the ultrasound to help give me peace of mind and a wonderful little momento.
Dr. Strickland is the best!
