I am very excited to join the medical team at the Nimkee Memorial Wellness Clinic this year.
I am a family practice doctor and have been practicing in the Bay City and Midland areas for the past 20 years.
I am originally from the Chicago area and attended the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine.
My focus is on mainly adolescent and adult health but see patients of all ages if needed. I also do some osteopathic manipulative medicine. Think of me as a mix of a MD and chiropractor. Prior to medical school I worked as a therapeutic massage therapist, so am able to use some of these skills with my osteopathic treatments.
On a personal note, I am married with two sons. My husband is a tribal member of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Atmore Alabama. This grounds my interest in working with tribal nations. We like riding trails on our side-by-side and go on motorcycle rides and trips with friends. We have two black labs and like to spend time pheasant hunting with them.
I look forward to meeting, caring, and forming new relationships with those patients I see at Nimkee
