Kappi fell in love with Women’s Health while she was in graduate school and prayed that she would be able to find employment in that field. She states, “I love the fact that I can relate to my patients due to my own past experiences. I remember what it was like to be a teenager, a newlywed, pregnant, post-partum and am still learning to juggle the demands of being a working mom. I also love learning from my patients that have had other experiences that I haven’t. To me it is all about building relationships and providing compassion and encouragement to each other through every season of life!” Kappi is in the process of relocating to Brookhaven this summer where her husband, Ron, is the Athletic Director and Football Coach at Brookhaven Academy.
