This first blog is an introduction of how my family found our way to Northern Virginia.
My husband and I moved to Burke, VA in 2012. We were very fortunate to be “co-located” for our military assignments. I was stationed in Bethesda, MD and my husband, Steve, in Quantico, VA. We decided to move to here because it seemed to be a good compromise for both of our commutes.
Shortly after moving here, a neighbor introduced me to her good friend Dr. Carol Wooddell. I was contemplating transitioning out of the military, so I started working a couple days a month in her office. It didn’t take long to realize that Dr. Wooddell had created something special. Over the past several years I have gotten to know her staff very well, and I have met many of her patients.
To be completely honest, it was a difficult decision for my husband and I to both separate from our active duty military careers. The transition into civilian life and figuring out “what we want to do when we grow up” came with a lot of unanticipated stressors. Our friends, neighbors, the schools and the entire Burke community made it clear, though, that this is where we want to raise our family.
I do not take for granted the opportunity to continue the legacy Dr. Wooddell has created. I am honored that she has “passed the baton” to me and I look forward to meeting and serving our local families for many years to come!
