A board certified Family Physician by training, I spent four years in undergrad at Villanova University, four years in medical school at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, and three years in residency at Long Beach Medical Center.

In my free time, I love exploring our new town of Chapel Hill, NC with my husband Michael and our three adventurous children Isabella, Lance & Lucia. Photography is my expressive art form. Cooking is how I nourish the bodies and souls of my friends and family. Watching and playing sports while being outdoors is how I relax… Three things I can’t live without: Coffee, kisses and a good wifi signal!
I am honored and privileged to help people around the globe with my innovative, action-oriented approach to finding TRUE wellness. And I look forward to getting to know you soon
