I love Kentucky, and I’m incredibly proud to call it my home. I was born and raised in Lexington. I ventured out to DePauw University, Indiana, where I earned a bachelor’s in communications. I also played 4 years of collegiate soccer, receiving All-America honors. After graduating, I spent time in Chicago enjoying the fast-paced city life. I realized Lexington was going to be my forever home as it got harder and harder to drive back to Chicago. I’m thankful for my Chicago days, and I’m glad to be back home.
I love meeting new people and creating meaningful relationships. I am excited to join Drs. Brown as their Director of Patient Experience. My passion is helping other people. I look forward to getting to know the members of Downtown Drs. Brown and exploring ways to promote healthy living outside the exam rooms.
I enjoy spending time with my family — my husband, two children, and our dog. I enjoy running, traveling, volunteering, and cheering on the Cats. I can’t wait to see you at Downtown Drs. Brown!
I was born and raised in Lexington with deep family roots, so I did not think twice about where I would go to college. I graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2006 with my Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and immediately started working at UK Hospital. I spent eight plus years working in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) taking care of some of Kentucky’s smallest (and mightiest) patients. It was a challenging, yet extremely rewarding, area of nursing. My time spent there was invaluable to my nursing experience and has left me with a profound gratitude for modern medicine.
In 2015, I left the PICU and changed pace completely to stay home with my daughter. I was fortunate to be able to spend three years at home with her, and to also welcome another daughter recently. Now I am ready to get back to nursing and I am so excited to join the team at Downtown Drs. Brown. Primary care will be a new experience for me, and the patients much larger, but I am excited for the opportunity to focus on health maintenance, in addition to acute issues.
Outside of work, my passion is my family, consisting of my husband and two daughters. We love to travel. Some of our favorite trips are to Florida where my husband enjoys scuba diving and spear fishing while our girls and I enjoy boating or playing on the beach. We also love skiing and try to make an annual trip to Utah. When we are not traveling we love low-key weekends spent with family and friends.
I look forward to creating lasting relationships with the patients at Downtown Drs. Brown, and helping each of you pursue a healthy lifestyle.
