Dr. Asbury is now accepting patients at Beacon Children’s Diagnostic Center, at 7550 Goodwin Road, in Chattanooga’s East Brainerd area.

“I am pleased to join the wonderful team at Beacon Health Alliance," said Dr. Asbury. "It’s a privilege to serve the needs of our patients and to help them have healthy childhoods. I believe every child is created uniquely in a wonderful way, which is why the care our team provides at Beacon Children’s Diagnostics Center treats each family with one-to-one personal attention."

Dr. Asbury earned her undergraduate degree in Biology at Furman University in South Carolina, where she graduated summa cum laude. While at Furman, she was active in leadership groups and medical missions organizations. She then moved to Memphis to earn her MD from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. She completed a residency at TC Thompson Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga. She also served as the chief resident and director of Adolescent Medicine at TC Thompson.  

Dr. Asbury is happy to continue her career in Chattanooga, where she lives with her husband and four children. In her free time, she enjoys participating in medical missions work and spending time with her family.
