What do you like to do in your spare time? 

Spending time with my husband, writing and traveling.

How did you get involved with WeCareJax? 

I met one of the previous executive directors, Dr. Sue Nussbaum, when Ascension St. Vincent’s was starting a transitional care clinic for primary care.  We were interested in placing uninsured patients into the most accessible and appropriate patient centered medical home.

Top 3 Favorite Things about Duval County:

1. The community and people are awesome to meet and work with.

2. The entertainment and sports ( Jags, Jumbo Shrimp, and Icemen)!

3. The city is surrounded by water (I love the beach and the river).  Both are very relaxing for me.
