Ms. Seagraves' sharp wit and quick thinking abilities are eclipsed only by her strong mental acuity and proficiency as an active listener and patient educator.
Ms. Seagraves is a Georgia native who found her path to Athens, GA from Thomasville while earning her B.S. degree in Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Georgia (UGA). She graduated from UGA with Cum Laude honors and then earned her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies degree from South University, College of Health Professions in Savannah. Ms. Seagraves brings ten years of medical experience to our practice. She has worked in many facets of patient care including Phase III Cardiac Rehab, MRI and Metabolism and Body Composition.
Ms. Seagraves chose to work with Athens Neurological Associates because of the family atmosphere among the employees, the quick pace of work, and because of the physicians' in-depth understanding and experience with autism within their own families. Ms. Seagraves' experience growing up with an autistic older brother attracted her to the neurological field of medicine. She recognized first-hand the importance of patients’ and patients’ families education and decided to dedicate her career towards helping those with conditions that even many in the medical community did not understand comprehensively.
Ms. Seagraves brings a unique ability to communicate complex information to patients in a manner that is easy to understand. She is a terrific listener, patient educator and never too proud to respond with honesty when her knowledge cannot resolve a patient's questions immediately.
In her free time, Ms. Seagraves likes cooking – specifically baking, spending time with her dog, Jake, singing with her husband, a musician, at Bethlehem Church and is an avid fan of UGA Football and Gymnastics.
