Welcome to Essential Family Medicine

Meet Lori

It has been my goal since early childhood to work in the medical field, and as a lifelong Shelbyville resident my desire has always been to stay within my community. After graduating from Shelbyville Central High School in 1999, I pursued a career in Nursing completing my RN degree from Motlow State Community College. I worked locally as a RN while completing my my Master’s Degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2006. After several years of practicing with a local physician, I am excited to announce I have taken the opportunity to begin my own private practice and am looking forward to serving my local community for many more years.
