My passion is to serve the low income community. I created a pediatric medical home that focuses on providing evidence based, comprehensive, and quality medical care for the underserved community. I now advocate at the state level for medicaid payment reform and integration of telemedicine to improve access among the underserved population. I have always been an advocate for independent private practice and encourage all physicians to take the leap and embrace autonomy and independence.

My newest endeavor is educating physicians on the importance of mindful living. After years of struggling with “chronic fatigue,” which is essentially unprocessed emotional toll, I became a certified Mindfulness Coach with a focus on female minority physicians. I am certified through the Life Coach School and I utilize their tools along with meditation, yoga, and breathwork to embark on an inner journey of self fulfillment to find JOY by connecting to the present moment. Visit my website or catch me on my podcast where I teach female physicians to fully take back responsibility for their lives by reclaiming their power and committing to being their most authentic selves.
