I moved to Gainesville from South Carolina with my family in 2001 and have worked as a physician with NGPG for 17 years. My husband is a professor of Mechanical Engineering at UGA, my son John is a Sophomore at Georgia Tech, and my daughter Hannah is a Junior at Gainesville High School. Five years ago, I donated one of my kidneys to my nephew, who will graduate from high school this year. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2017, but I was blessed that my cancer was caught at such an early stage that with treatment, I am now breast cancer free! I am participating in Dancing for a Cause mainly to embarrass my children, but more importantly because I feel so strongly about supporting these non-profit organizations. Through my own experiences, I learned that Gainesville takes care of its own. I appreciate the opportunity to give back to the community that has given me so much and now I’m here to show that South Carolina girls can get down with their bad selves!!!
