I get asked frequently why I chose a career in Women’s Health. During my freshman year of college in a pharmacy program I was taking a psychology class that presented a case with a woman struggling with infertility. I found this case so interesting I started to learn more about infertility and women’s health in general. Within a few weeks I talked with my parents and my advisor as I was determined to switch to a premedical program with the intention to become an OB/GYN. During medical school I kept an open mind but found my interests consistently were around women’s health. 

Over the last few years I have found that my interests are focused on obstetrics and management of high-risk obstetrical patients as well as infertility and preventative care. I enjoy the continuity of care during pregnancy and with seeing patients for routine annual examinations. I appreciate guiding patients through the normal transitions of life including adolescence to menopause. I love learning about my patients beyond their medical history and needs. I am a big believer in food as medicine and the effects of lifestyle on our overall health. 

Outside of work I love hiking, cycling, balanced with cooking and experiencing new restaurants. I am also frequently in the midst of a home DIY project. I have a very supportive husband and a spirited daughter as well as a dog and a dozen chickens!
