Accepting new patients.

309-629-4601 Call for an Appointment

I have seen how health affects individuals and families' quality of life. I enjoy helping others feel their best so they can take care of their responsibilities and enjoy life.

I want to be a health care partner for others to help them along their life journey. I desire for others to have the best quality of life through prevention of preventable illnesses, screening for diseases and illnesses and management of the chronic illnesses. My desire to help others started when I was ten years old. I wanted to be a doctor to help the sick children and their families.

Areas Of Interest

I am interested in diabetes management, heart disease, and wound healing, including leg wounds and other difficult-to-heal wounds. I also provide women's health care including annual exams and screenings and well child visits.

I believe in encouraging individuals to make healthy choices of exercise, food.

I am just learning about genetic testing and how this can help diagnose family diseases, but also how medications are metabolized in our bodies. The genetic testing is exciting for our future as health care providers as the information helps us to prescribe medications that would work best for individuals. Potentially decreasing the amount of time health care providers spend on finding the right diagnosis for patients.

I also have interest in screening for colonoscopies. We have a newer option for those who may not want a colonoscopy performed. I would love to share this information with you.

Personal Life

I am a married mother of four children in their 20's. My interests are many. I enjoy Zumba, hot yoga, walking along the river and in state parks - My favorite park is Starved Rock in Utica, IL. My favorite sports to watch are baseball and ice hockey, and I enjoy going to local sporting events. I absolutely love live music events. For my downtime I knit a little every evening, and I love to read Nicholas Sparks books. My favorite food is any type of salad.
