Icompleted my undergraduate education at University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. While in attendance, I received Presidential Scholarship and recognition as Anderson Scholar for academic excellence in my specialty. I also received Presidential Service Award due to commitment to the community as I served as a crisis-intervention counselor for almost 5 years. I then went on to further my education at the University of Florida to earn my Masters in Physician Assistant Studies. I concurrently worked heavily in clinical research contributing to several different publications, regarding the impact of obesity in the emergency department, the impact of perfectionism and procrastination on psychological distress, and the effects of low health literacy in emergency services. As a result, patient education is an integral part of my practice.
I am board certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and licensed through the State of Florida Board of Medicine. I am an active member in American Academy of Physician Assistants and Florida Academy of Physician Assistants.
