I am a native of Baton Rouge and graduated from the LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport in 2008. I am board certified in Family Medicine and have additional certifications from the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine and the Hospice Medical Director Certification Board. I have spent my career treating complex patients with multiple chronic diseases, providing comfort care to hospice patients, and treating primary care patients with an integrative, wellness-based approach. I have a passion for preventive medicine and teaching lifestyle habits that keep us living better, longer. I am a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and recipient of the Tulane School of Medicine Owl's Club Award for teaching. I love what I do and consider the opportunity to work with my patients a true privilege.My primary philosophy of care is that it is essential to treat each patient as a whole person. I know that there is much more to achieving good health than can be found in lab values and test results. I am passionate about educating my patients and my community on the positive impact new lifestyle habits have on our health and well-being. I have learned that my goals as a physician must be aligned with my patients' goals for us to have a successful partnership. With that in mind, I work together with my patients to identify and help meet their personal wellness objectives.
