Story about me

And how I got to this point

In my late teens while in my church’s youth service, we were challenged to write a vision statement for ourselves.   I stated I wanted to complete a residency in Family Medicine with a goal to finish a fellowship in Alternative Medicine.  After earning my medical degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School and completing a family medicine residency at Franklin Square Hospital in Baltimore, I never completed the fellowship.  Instead, I gladly accepted a position in Hampton, VA in a traditional practice run by a large health system for 14 years.  Towards the end of this time, I realized my patients were not getting better.  I was barely able to maintain their conditions.  Even worse, I started to develop health concerns of my own.  Stress, poor sleep, and being overworked added to my symptoms.  I sought to find a way for my body and that of my patients’ to heal naturally. 


I was introduced to the Nutritional Therapy Association by a great friend.  Here, I learned how to evaluate the body from an alternative perspective and use supplements and nutrition to improve it.  Desiring more education, I then obtained my certification in Functional Medicine from the Functional Medicine University.  Here, I was provided an evidenced-based education on clinical nutrition. The combination of clinical nutrition and allopathic medicine helped me to improve my own health.  In the final days in my traditional practice, this approach produced positive results for my patients also.  I believe wellness is not just management of disease, but rather it involves a balance of the mind, body and spirit with nutrition, exercise, and mental wholeness.  


I am excited! N2U Nutrition and Wellness is a vision that came about out of a need to be better—a better physician who seeks to prevent disease and treat the cause…. a better person to myself by slowing down my pace to improve my own health and longevity… a better daughter, sister, and mother because I am present.  


Let us work together for a better you!
