I grew up in New Orleans where I graduated from Charity School of Surgical Technology in 1985. After completing surgical technology, I worked as a certified surgical tech for an ENT doctor in New Orleans. This was private practice outpatient surgery with a variety of both ENT and cosmetic procedures. My family and I moved to Baton Rouge in 1986. We have two sons together. One of my sons is doing a residency in internal medicine, and my younger son is finishing at LSU. Since I prefer a non-hospital position, I was fortunate to find the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge — a private outpatient plastic surgery facility. I have been working as a surgical tech for Dr. Williams at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge ever since. I enjoy working in plastic surgery because I get the opportunity to directly help and see our patients achieve their goals in the operating room. Outside of the office, I love the Louisiana weather because it makes for the best gardening.
