I am a board-certified pediatrician with over 20 years of experience in outpatient and inpatient pediatrics. My medical school training was completed at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, pediatric internship at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida and pediatric residency at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
I am certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and currently hold licenses to practice medicine in the states of Florida and Georgia. My interests are in general pediatric care, infectious diseases, and developmental and behavioral pediatrics, particularly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
MyKidzMD Pediatrics was designed to provide a level of service unheard of in a traditional pediatric practice. I left a career in traditional insurance-based practice so that I would have the freedom to deliver personalized care without having to sacrifice quality. MyKidzMD was borne out of the desire to deliver community-based, relationship-driven, high-quality, evidence-based health care directly to families without the interference of third parties.
I reside in Largo, Florida with my husband and daughter. I consider myself a lifetime learner and serial entrepreneur. My favorite hobbies are listening to podcasts, reading, and spending quality time at the beach with my family.
