WHY I CHOSE PAIN MANAGEMENT

After 10yrs working as a Charge Nurse in a hospital setting I realized that I wanted to become more involved in my patient’s care. I wanted to be that person that help guide and educate them on their disease process so that they may develop a deeper understanding of their ailments and together work on a treatment plan that was tailored to them specifically. During my time in a Primary Care setting I realized that almost every patient suffered from chronic or acute pain and I watched as this affected their ability to perform simple task and their quality of life started to decline. I chose Jax Spine because of what this Practice stands for. Jax Spine is not your typical pain management clinic. We focus on “Interventional treatment” We educate our patient’s on the pathology of their pain so they have an understanding of what is causing the pain and we treat the source.

PERSONAL INTERESTS AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

I enjoy spending time with my family, watching all sports, especially going to Jags game, playing basketball and traveling abroad.
