I grew up in Virginia, but my husband and I moved to Madison, AL in January 2018 with our two beautiful children. We love everything about living here! I have been a Speech Pathologist since 2007 and have worked with both children and adults (and love working with both!). 

I love being a part of the amazing family here at Mill Creek and am so thankful to have my sweet little daughter here with me as well!

Some of my favorite things are hanging out with my husband and babies, visiting family, exploring new places, shopping, watching UVA sports (Go Hoos!!), watching UVA win the 2019 National Championship in basketball! watching the Broncos, ice cream, socializing, being outside, and all holidays!

Green House rocks!!
