I have been fortunate enough to call Lexington my home for most of my life. After graduating from Lexington High School, I then completed my Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the Honors College of the College of Charleston. Upon completion of my undergraduate degree I then earned my Medical Doctorate from MUSC and went on to complete my residency program in pediatrics at the University of South Carolina. It was during residency that Dr. Delaney and myself had this crazy idea to open up a new pediatric practice here in Lexington and now many years later we are proud to be a foundational part of a growing group that has served so many wonderful families of the Midlands of South Carolina and surrounding areas. Personally, I met the love of my life, Sara, early in life and have been truly blessed to have her love and support in this crazy journey of life and medicine. We have 3 amazing children who keep us on our toes everyday with their amazing love of life. As a family we enjoy our time together at church, lots of travel and sometimes just resting at home with our family and friends.
