is a Board Certified Family Medicine Physician, best selling author, blogger, mentor, speaker, and most importantly- Mommy to Langston Miles.
Born and raised in Hueytown, Alabama, Dr. Congress currently runs a hospital based clinic at the hospital at which she was born. Talk about full circle! She has overcome various obstacles on her journey but is grateful to be able to use those life experiences to encourage, inspire, and motivate others.
