Research & Publications
I am a native of Augusta, Georgia, and an honored second-generation graduate of the Medical College of Georgia (MCG). I am trained in psychiatry by both the University of Pennsylvania and by my alma mater, MCG. I consider myself to be an advocate for patient and provider safety through promoting the equitable treatment of behavioral emergencies within general medical/surgical inpatient hospital settings. I am also a strong supporter of diversity and inclusion by finding opportunities to recognize and teach about unconscious bias, namely racism, within daily clinical practice and medical education. Perhaps most importantly, my professional identity is firmly rooted in being an outspoken African American physician and an unwavering family-oriented woman.
