I am a Shreveport native, born and raised in Northwest Louisiana. After graduating from C.E. Byrd High School in 2002, I attended college at the University of Arkansas, earning a Biologic Sciences degree. Coming back to attend medical school at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport was an easy decision. I went to Jackson, Mississippi for my pediatric residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children. Shreveport is my home, so coming back here after completing my residency was a natural choice. I am certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

You may ask why I chose to be a pediatrician. Following children as they grow and develop through the many stages of life is very rewarding. My philosophy is to treat each patient as a whole person and not just the symptoms. I am happily married and my husband, Trey, and I are proud parents of two wonderful children. Becoming a mother has allowed me to relate my personal experiences to my practice. My family and I are happy to be back in the Shreveport-Bossier area. My ultimate goal is to provide a medical home for your child where you, the parent, can take part in your child's growth and development.
