“So what made you decide to work with feet all day?”
I cannot tell you how many times in a day I am asked that
question. But with a smile I answer “Well I have always
wanted to be a doctor and do surgery, but I did not want to
deal with death, I did not want to be on call a lot, and I
wanted to be able to have time for a family”. By the
grace of God my dream came true.
It all began in Lewiston NY, where I was born, so according
to my husband, I am not a true Buffalonian. I tend to disagree;
I did all of my schooling in Buffalo, including attending
the best high school in Buffalo, City Honors. During my years
in high school I was very fortunate to be able to participate
in the S.T.E. P. program at Buffalo State College. I participated
in the after school program and in the summer program as well.
I absolutely loved and still love the S.T.E.P. program. I
can remember doing some of the most interesting projects.
My favorite was making a solar powered car! S.T.E.P. allowed
me to keep interested and excited about science. I was also
able to attend various college tours which broadened my horizons
and gave me options about college choices.
After graduating from high school I went to Rochester Institute
of Technology where I received my Bachelors of Science Degree
in Biochemistry. My podiatric education took place at William
M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in North Chicago,
IL. During my education I was required to do externships and
I chose to go everywhere warm! West Palm beach, FL, Houston,
TX, and Phoenix, AZ just to name a few. I soon discovered
that my heart longed to be home in Buffalo. I did a two year
surgical residency with the Catholic Health System. Wanting
to further my education I did another year of residency in
Norwalk, CA with an emphasis on rear foot surgery. While participating
in residency in California I also attended Aristotle University
School of Public Health Research Institute where I received
my Masters in Public Health.
The sunshine and beaches were not enough to keep me out
west. I came back Buffalo where I joined Northtown Podiatry.
I am currently the only African American female podiatrist
in Western New York. I treat all pathology related to the
foot. It is especially important for me to get our community
to understand the importance of proper foot care, even more
important for those with diabetes. I have done several health
fairs and given lectures on the subject. I also perform and
am well trained in surgical procedures treating bunions, hammertoes,
heel pain and a myriad of other foot pathology.
In addition to being a “foot doc”, I love being
involved in my church, Berea Church of God In Christ, where
I am a Sunday School Teacher, member of the Hulda Club and
on the Finance Committee. I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha
Sorority Inc. I also participate in Tae Kwon Do where I have
a red stripe belt and am working towards a black belt.
I married the love of my life Dorian in 2010 and we are
embarking on an amazing life long journey together. I am the
second oldest of four children born to Nathaniel and Beverly
Lee Jr. My parents instilled a love and fear of God that has
brought me where I am today. Without my family and friends
I would not be able to do what I love to do. It is my goal
to provide the absolute best podiatric care I can for my patients.
