Professional Notes

My journey in the field of medicine has spanned eight dedicated years, during which I have had the privilege of serving patients at Esse Health. I hold dual certifications in Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine, and my practice is firmly rooted in the principles of preventive medicine, diabetic care, and obesity management.

My approach to healthcare is deeply grounded in the belief that lifestyle changes can often be the most powerful prescription. Rather than relying solely on medications, I am committed to guiding my patients towards sustainable, healthier choices that promote their well-being.

At the core of my philosophy is the unwavering belief that everyone deserves personalized and compassionate healthcare. I'm here to remind you that you deserve more than just routine healthcare; you deserve a healthcare partner who listens, understands, and works with you to achieve your best possible life. Together, we can embrace personalized and compassionate healthcare that recognizes your unique story and strives for your well-being, every step of the way.

Personal Notes

I am not only passionate about healthcare but also deeply connected to my personal life. I am happily married to my husband, who is not only a dedicated software engineer but also a former member of the Navy, serving our country with honor and dedication. Together, we have built a life full of love, support, and shared dreams.

Our family extends to include two wonderful boys who bring endless joy and laughter into our lives. And, of course, we can't forget our feline family member, our beloved cat who adds a touch of charm to our home.

Outside of the medical world, I have a profound love for yoga and outdoor activities. Yoga, with its focus on mindfulness and balance, aligns perfectly with my approach to healthcare, emphasizing holistic well-being.

Having called St. Louis home for over a decade, my family and I have grown to cherish this vibrant and welcoming city. We are deeply rooted in the community, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to serve the health and wellness needs of the people in this wonderful city.
