Where did you grow up?
Louisiana
Why did you become a doctor and why did you choose your specialty?
I think infectious diseases are the most fascinating part of medicine. It is wonderful to see children get well!
What do you most enjoy doing outside of your clinical practice, when you’re not working?
Spending time with my family, baking, and cooking.
Do you volunteer? If so, where?
Yes, at my daughter’s school and at our church.
If you weren’t a doctor, what profession would you most likely be doing and why?
I would probably be a science teacher as I really enjoy science and seeing kids excited about learning. Some days I wish I could just be a professional party planner as that's fun, too.
