While was raised in Alexandria, I have lived in Shreveport for the past 8 years and consider it my home. I went to Louisiana Tech University for undergrad and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. Following graduation, I attended LSU Health Science Center in Shreveport for both medical school and residency, acting as the Administrative Chief Resident during my final year.

While in residency, I was fortunate to have received the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine Resident Award, Dr. James A. Truly Resident Award, and Earl Dilworth Resident Research Award. However, my greatest honor was being nominated by my peers for the Gold Humanism Honor Society, an organization that focuses on compassionate care and dedication to service.

When choosing a field of medicine, I was immediately drawn to Obstetrics and Gynecology due to the wide range of care. It also allows me to develop a lasting relationship with my patient through all seasons of life, from adolescence to pregnancy to menopause and everything in between. When people ask me what the best part about my job is, I simply say “that I get to be a part of the story”.

One of my strongest interests is caring for high risk pregnancy patients. I value staying up to date with the latest research and medical advances to provide the best care for my patients. I also enjoy minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, including robotic‐assisted surgery. In all aspects of care, it is important for me to gain trust and understanding from each patient as it relates to their individualized plan of care.

I enjoy traveling, cooking, and spending time with my family, especially my niece and nephew.
