Meet the Providers


I truly love and value my patients!

From day one of my move here from Detroit to Waldorf, I was met with warm smiles and open arms. The community embraced me and immediately became family. My relationship with my patients has continued to grow and flourish over the years. It is because of you, my patients, my family, that I have decided to embark upon this next great endeavor; the opening of Waldorf Women’s Care! You have shown me so much love and support and, I would like to return that love to you by giving you THE BEST care possible.

Thank you for encouraging me to follow my dream. With your help, Waldorf Women’s Care will lead the way in women’s health and wellness.
