Growing up in the Mississippi Delta, as a child with asthma, I was inspired to do Pediatrics by my childhood pediatrician. She inspired me with her compassion and her intellect. I attended medical school at UMMC and graduated in 1993. I went on to complete my residency in Pediatrics here in 1996. During the fall of my PGY-3 year, we decided to expand our residency continuity clincs to the community in order to provide more accessible "medical homes" for our underserved patients. My continuity clinic was the first pediatric continuity clinic that became a "community -based" clinic and moved off-campus. I remained here on staff after I completed my residency in 1996. I have now been here for almost 21 years and have served as the Medical Director here at North Clinic since 1999. We have grown the clinic from just 1 provider and 1 resident to now 7 providers and 24 residents along with numerous medical students who rotate through our clinic. We provide preventive care as well as treat acute and chronic illness at our clinic. I am very proud of the work we do at North Clinic and more proud that it serves as a true "medical home" for the under-served patients here in the metro-Jackson and surrounding areas.
