Hi! I am a mom of 16 year-old twin

boys and a Board Certified

Pediatrician. I grew up in Tyler,

attending T.K. Gorman, Tyler Junior

College, and The University of

Texas at Tyler. I completed Medical

School at the University of Texas

Southwestern in Dallas.

That is where I met my husband Jeff, he is also from Tyler and is an

Ophthalmologist.  We moved to Denver to complete our residencies and lived

there for 4 years. We lived in Wyoming for two years and then moved to Salt

Lake City for further training. Our twins were born in Salt Lake.

Our journeys took us to Philadelphia next, where I was a stay-at-home-Mom for

two years while the boys were between 1-3 years-old. Feeling the need to

settle down brought us back home to Tyler and near family.

We have been back since 2003. Grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts,

uncles, and cousins are all near-by. The boys love growing up in East Texas

and it is wonderful to be home again.

Thanks for checking out my web

site. I hope you find it helpful.
