I was born and raised in Shreveport and am a proud graduate of C.E. Byrd High School. After graduation, I attended LSU Baton Rouge where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Psychology.
Prior to attending medical school, I took a year off and had the wonderful opportunity to give back to my alma mater and teach Physical Science and Biology at C.E. Byrd. During medical school at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, I was inducted to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and received the Outstanding Student in OBGYN Award as well as the Don and Ruby Horton Generosity of Spirit Award. Following completion of medical school I stayed in Shreveport to complete my internship and residency in OBGYN at LSU Health Sciences Center. During residency I received the Earl Dilworth Resident Research Award.
I truly enjoy all aspects of general OBGYN practice, especially the challenge of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Also, I am honored to care for women during their childbearing years and do not take it lightly. It can be such a vulnerable time for each family and having the opportunity to be a part of this stage of life is truly wonderful. I am excited to be able to stay in my hometown to practice and serve the women of Shreveport / Bossier City.
My pledge is to always strive to provide the patient care that I would want my mother, my sister, and my best friend to receive. My husband and I are parents to a son who is the apple of our eyes. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, baking, and tackling a good DIY project.
