Project Joy

Joy and peace are mine and I am grateful.  I started this blog in February 2017 to share my story with the world.  I am writing a book about navigating the joys and complexities of life while pursuing wellness and balance with intent.  I am passionate about health, food, exercise, reading, photography, travel, great friendships, and rich discussions. 

Formal Background

I am a former Division I student-athlete at Colgate University with a concentration in Neuroscience.  I obtained my Masters in Health Science and Physician Assistant training at Duke University and practice medicine at Johns Hopkins Emergency Department.  See more about my formal training on Linkedin

Inside scoop

I am mother to two girls with beauty, brains, and brawn.  I am an individual head of household.  My late husband was consumed by Lung Cancer.  I am counting my blessings and walking forward with heightened awareness and a better appreciation for this gift of life and the collective with which I share my walk.  Perhaps you may be encouraged to live daily with greater clarity of purpose and intent.  Let's grow together on this incredible journey.  The life of your dreams is possible.

I post to this blog on Thursdays weekly.  I am published on Apple News.  I post travel and life pictures to instagram weekly.  


I write about real life stuff as it relates to a busy professional balancing a career and life.  Sometimes we are so focused on the career thing that we miss out on LIVING!  That's where I center my content.  I am asking questions to tweak what we are doing on a daily basis to make everything richer and sweeter.  Overall wellness in line with purpose is the goal.

I believe everyone should be able to relate to this blog, in some capacity,   I am releasing it so that it may mature into what it is supposed to be.
