Short Business Description:
I am a board-certified family medicine physician specializing in integrative and functional medicine. After practicing as a physician assistant, I found functional medicine through my own health journey, and went back to medical school to further my education. After completing the Institute for Functional Medicine certification while acting as chief resident, I aspired to practice an upstream, root cause approach to medicine, and found the Penny George Institute.

My professional interests include mental wellness, weight management, hypothyroidism, irritable bowel syndrome, male and female bio-hormone replacement, women’s health and fertility. I offer face-to-face and virtual visits for a variety of health services and conditions at the WestHealth clinic in Plymouth. When not working, you can find me hiking and cycling with my family, cooking and baking, and planning our next vacation destination.
