New Patient Coordinator
When somebody calls our office for the first time, I welcome them, provide information, and schedule their first visit. I coordinate with the referring office to make sure we have all the necessary information before the first visit.

If I had the opportunity - I would travel to Antarctica to go whale watching
Two people I would invite to dinner - Ellen Dengeneres and Mark Wahlberg
We understand patients and parents are busier than ever so we try to make appointments as convenient as possible. I also work with patients to determine the best payment options while maximizing their insurance benefits.

One of my favorite movies – “Imitation of Life” 1959 version with Lana Turner and Sandra Dee
One thing about me that nobody knows - On some weekends I change into a hard hat and steel toe boots to assist in the construction of places of worship in our local community
I work remotely from Ocala, Florida. I used to work in the office but had to move to take care of my elderly mother. You may hear from me when I confirm appointments or email letters.

Something about you that nobody knows - I used to be in the marching band in high school and played the flute and piccolo, I was also a pitcher on a softball team
