It is an honor to introduce myself to you. I grew up in Becket, Massachusetts, a small town in the Berkshires. I have been blessed to have wonderful parents who have given me the support and strength to follow my dreams and taught me strong family values.Being a doctor is a desire that I’ve had since I was 12 years old. I graduated from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1997 and completed my medical student rotations in Brooklyn New York and my residency training in at St, Joseph’s Medical Center in Yonkers, NY in 2001. My passion to provide comprehensive healthcare and to use wellness to keep away illness led me to choose family practice as my discipline. I became board-certified in family medicine in 2003 and board certified in obesity medicine in 2013.It has long been a desire of mine to provide a whole body approach, to not just treat illness but to promote overall health, happiness and well-being. Throughout my career I saw the negative effects that obesity has on the body, mind and spirit. We want to bring an integrative approach to health care to incorporate cutting edge science, Bio-identical hormone replacement, food and herbal alternatives to deliver the best care possible.I along with my husband opened our practice, Ashland integrative medicine in 2014 to provide a private, comfortable, family-friendly environment where patients can feel free to address the sensitive issues and help us guide them towards a healthier, more productive life.It is my honor and a privilege to serve all your healthcare needs.
