"Dr. Smith is a board-certified internist specializing in obesity medicine within the Inova VIP 360° team. Special interests include obesity medicine, preventative medicine and treating chronic medical conditions. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience from Vanderbilt University, went to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh and completed Internal Medicine Residency at George Washington University. She currently directs a comprehensive and individualized medical weight management program encompassing nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral changes. She is dedicated to providing compassionate, collaborative and evidence based medicine."

After many years of practicing primary care, Dr. Smith has treated a great number of patients with weight-related chronic medical conditions. Striving for the best outcomes for her patients, she began researching ways to treat chronic conditions and obesity.

Dr. Smith enjoys working with patients to create a comprehensive and individualized weight management program including nutrition, physical activity, behavioral changes and medications if necessary. She believes an individual’s weight is multifactorial and losing weight is not as simple as “calories in – calories out,” or always related to a lack of will power. In order to achieve desired outcomes, Dr. Smith works with each patient to meet their unique needs. She truly loves the privilege of practicing medicine and getting to know each and every patient and is dedicated to providing compassionate and collaborative medical care.

Dr. Smith lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and three children. In her free time she loves spending time with her family, running, traveling and exploring DC."
