Biography

I am a native of Tennessee having been born and raised in Cumberland County.  I always had a passion for studying the human body and what made it work and what caused it to fail.  I had wonderful teachers which propelled me into a teaching career.  I left TN to move to Tampa, FL, to pursue my Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences with a focus in Anatomy and Cell Biology.  I completed my Ph.D. with East Tennessee State University and taught multiple biology courses at Freed-Hardeman University while working as a senior research assistant at the Cancer Research Institute of West Tennessee.  

Wishing to pursue teaching at the medical school level, I moved to Blacksburg, VA, where I was employed by the Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine teaching gross anatomy and neuroanatomy.   I left teaching to go to medical school and joined the U.S. Army.  I started my active duty military career in June 2010 when I started my internship at Eisenhower Army Medical Center.  I completed my residency in Internal Medicine and my Fellowship in Hematology & Oncology at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Rockville, MD. During my final year of fellowship, I was priveleged to train under RADM Richard Childs of the National Heart, Lung, Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health doing bone marrow stem cell transplants for patients with aplastic anemia. Following completion of my fellowship in 2016, I assigned to be a staff hematologist-oncologist at Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC) in Tacoma, WA.  

I was deployed from MAMC to Kuwait from the fall 2016 to summer 2017.  Upon my return to MAMC, I  served as  Chief of the Hematology-Oncology Service from fall 2017 until Sept 2021.  During that time, we had the honor of being the 1st cancer clinic to launch the Department of Defense's new electronic health record, as well as safely navigating the early threat of COVID in Washington state. 

Having been out of TN for so many years, I am excited to be returning closer to home to be near family and my roots, and to continue providing care to oncology patients.  I am looking forward to working with a wonderful team to provide the highest quality of patient care to oncology patients.
