“Although I absolutely love my profession, I equally enjoy the other half of my time with my children, exploring the world with my husband, being outdoors (hence settling back in Florida), tasting a variety of cuisines, and dabbling in the fine arts. By and large, I look forward to providing you with the care you seek!”
