She has a passion for education, women’s health, preventative care, office procedures, orthopedics and sports medicine.

She began her volunteer work as a student at the VA Hospital both during high school and undergraduate.
She is a native of Texas, but she has lived in 9 different states since her birth which she believes gives her a strong foundation for appreciating and understanding the diversity of our nation.
