Clinical Interest for Patients
I specialize in the care and management of patients with epileptic and non-epileptic seizures.

Care Philosophy
I started my career thinking I would be a psychiatrist and learned to listen first. Patients often have their own solutions, and the doctor needs to help the patient discover what those solutions are. I believe the doctors role is to be a partner with the patient in their care.

Personal Interests
I am an avid knitter. I sing in my church choir and plan music liturgy. I grow my own vegetables and love container gardening. I make jams and jellies. I love to be outdoors hiking or running.

Volunteer Activities
I am current (soon to be past) chair of the physician's advisory board to the Epilepsy Foundation. I am a church volunteer. I am a volunteer fund raiser for the Epilepsy Foundation. I serve on the membership committee of the American Epilepsy Society.
