I grew up in Newport News with severe asthma, spending many nights in hospital emergency rooms. Fortunately I had wonderful doctors and nurses who took great care of me during those difficult times. Those experiences as a child stimulated my interest in medicine and it was only natural that I choose a specialty that cares for people with asthma and allergies.
I have been blessed to be able to train with some of the most outstanding physicians in the country who specialize in Allergy and Clinical Immunology. That training, combined with my own personal experiences, gives me the ability to provide for my patients a level of care that is difficult to find elsewhere. Two of my children have allergies as well, so I also know what it’s like to be a parent of an allergic child.
I’ve worked with the American Lung Association in Virginia since 1994. In 2012, I was elected to serve a 3-year term on the Nationwide Assembly of the American Lung Association, where I am able to work on a national level to promote lung health and advocate for clean air.
