I’m proud to join UTHSC from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD where I completed my fellowship in Laryngology (study of the voice box). I received my Medical Degree from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and was then accepted into the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital – Department of Otolaryngology where I completed my internship and residency training.
I’m excited about my role at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center as Assistant Professor and Director of the Division of Laryngology. I’m passionate about creating an awareness for vocal hygiene and prevention in the Memphis community and providing state of the art care in this field.
My areas of expertise include the full spectrum of disorders of the voice which range from management of the professional voice, treatment of neurological conditions of the larynx, benign and malignant conditions of the vocal folds, vocal fold paralysis, airway reconstruction and swallowing disorders. I’m also is particularly interested in endoscopic and office-based approaches, as well as the use of laser treatment in laryngeal disorders.
Outside of my practice, I’m classically trained pianist, having performed in venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Cami Hall. I’m also a vocalist with experience in performing, recording and leading worship in my local church.
I am accompanied by my wonderful husband, Eric, a well-traveled vocalist with a background in music industry, and my lovely sons, Xander and Axel.
