Why I Chose Pediatrics:

Pediatrics is the best job in the world! I am humbled to hold miracles in my arms day after day.  It is an honor and privilege to hold a newborn and to be a part of their lives as they grow and develop. To watch adolescents mature and grow into healthy, responsible adults is amazing. To laugh, cry and support families and patients is more than I could ever have dreamed when I began this profession. I have been blessed beyond measure from the relationships formed over the years.

Special Medical Interests

  • Newborn care
  • Breastfeeding
  • Tongue tie/frenotomy

  • Mental health


I was called to open Pirate Pediatrics in 2012. Although I have enjoyed missions in South America & Africa, serving children and their families in Eastern North Carolina is my passion. A native of New Bern, I have also lived in Tennessee where I met my husband. When I’m not working, you will find me spending time with my family, reading, gardening, or walking on the beach. I have a daughter, a son, and a goldendoodle.
