I am from Wading River, New York. I graduated from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in 1986 and finished my family medicine residency in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1989. Over the following year I was on faculty with the residency program and worked in an inner city clinic associated with the residency program. In 1990, I joined Lynden Family Medicine.
My husband, Tony, and I have four sons and two daughters. We also have three dogs, two cats and a bearded dragon. We enjoy spending time as a family and camping.
