Currently serving as an Aerospace Medicine Physician Assistant with the 116 ACW/MDG DET 1 of the Georgia Air National Guard. I began my military career in the Army serving as a Unit Supply Specialist for a little over 3 years where I was blessed to have met and married my husband of 30+ years. While traveling with my husband, as he served 20 years in the Army, I became a mother and a Physician Assistant. For the past 16+ years I have had the honor and privilege of serving as a Primary Care provider for Soldiers, Marines and their families in various settings. 5 years ago I found myself with an empty nest, looking for an adventure and a desire to serve my country once again. After a 20+ year break in service the GAANG gave me that opportunity. In 2019, I was afforded the chance to complete all 3 levels of the Aerospace Medicine Program, train and participate in my first CERFP Exercise Eval and recently mobilize as part of a Joint Task Force in response to the COVID 19 Pandemic. I look forward to serving as a part of SAFPA and continue to promote Physician Assistants within the military and civilian sectors.
