Born and raised in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, Dr. Craig has always been a small-town girl with big dreams. She remembers scrawling her name and the word “doctor” on her very first homemade, crayon-laden, construction paper business card at age 5. Growing up, she admired the kind pediatric physicians she encountered and aspired to be among them. From Arkansas, she moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology.
Subsequently, she completed her medical education at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. She naturally gravitated towards the specialty of pediatric neurology where her interest in the neurological sciences and passion for helping children intertwined. She was recognized as an American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation Minority Scholar and received the specially designated Ronald M. Davis, M.D., Memorial Scholarship. This award honored her commitment to the elimination of healthcare disparities, outstanding academic achievements, leadership activities, and community involvement.
While completing her residency in pediatric neurology at UT Southwestern, she found that many of her patients also experienced sleep concerns and she became intrigued by the complexities of sleep disorders. This inspired her to pursue a fellowship in sleep medicine, which she also completed at UT Southwestern.
As a testament of her continued education, the doctor is board-certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). The ABPN is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to serving the professions of psychiatry and neurology.
To boot, she is board-certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). The mission of the ABP is to advance child health by certifying pediatricians who meet standards of excellence and are committed to continuous learning and improvement.
Finally, Dr. Craig is board-certified in sleep medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.
Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. It deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous systems, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle. A child neurologist, or pediatric neurologist, is a doctor who treats children who have problems with their nervous system. Problems in the nervous system can start in the brain, spine, nerves, or muscles. These can lead to problems such as seizures, headaches, or developmental delays.
In her spare time, Dr. Craig loves spending quality moments with her wonderful husband and two children, extended family, and friends. She enjoys reading fantasy and fiction novels, cooking, volunteering, and practicing mindfulness. She is keen on travel and learning about different cultures.
