i first identified my interest in healthcare while in high school and went on to pursue a degree in nursing at UMC in 1973. During that time on campus, i also worked as a student nurse extern in the pediatric hospital, starting in newborn nursery and moving on to pediatric medicine and intensive care unit. After graduation from nursing school, i began working in the NICU. Further studies led me to UAB and a master's degree in pediatrics with clinical emphasis, a 5 year tenure in the newly formed Sleep Disorders Center at UMC and pre-med studies at MIllsaps College. After medical school, i trained in pediatrics at UMC and remained on the faculty afterwards. I truly enjoy my affiliation with UMC and its' mission, the residents and the students, and our children.
