I was born and raised in Ocala, FL. In 2004, I graduated from Furman University located in Greenville, SC. There I double majored in biology and Spanish language and literature. In 2008, I graduated from Georgetown University School of Medicine.

I completed my neurology residency at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. I earned my board certification as a general neurologist in 2012. I then served as a general neurologist at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi for three years before coming to UVA to do a vascular neurology fellowship. I specialize in the diagnosis and management of cerebrovascular disorders, including stroke, TIA, intracerebral hemorrhage and carotid disease. I have a particular interest in graduate medical education, and I am pursuing a Masters of Education in health professions from Johns Hopkins University. I will be serving as an associate program director for the UVA Neurology Residency Program beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, David, who is also a neurologist at UVA, and our two sons, Owen and Alec.
