About Me

I am the Medical Director of the AHF Healthcare Centers: Safety Harbor and St. Petersburg. I have been practicing medicine since the mid 1980’s, mainly in rural hospital settings caring for patients with advanced HIV infection and OIs. I have seen first-hand how patients, who were sent home to die, can live long healthy lives. I initially started as an Infectious Disease Specialist, where I diagnosed and treated diseases like Cryptococcal Meningitis, Cerebral Toxoplasmosis, CMV retinitis and PJP. Now, I am able to keep patient immunologically healthy and virally suppressed thus preventing fatal infections.

Fun Fact: From the young age of 24, my husband and I have been practicing medicine, shared medical practices, and as a team treated and saved the lives of many HIV Positive patients. Many of whom are still living healthy lives. We have been married for over 30 years and have raised 3 great kids! In addition, as a daugher of a talent carpenter and florist, I am very artsy, crafty, and have a green thumb.
