Before arriving in the Pacific Northwest, I had the privilege of studying and practicing in the Northeast and in Texas. My main focus has always been advocating for women's health and access to affordable care. I cannot remember a time when I did not work in the women's health arena. There is no greater joy than participating in the birth of a child! When I am not caring for my patients, I enjoy running and exploring the great outdoors with my two rambunctious boys and my loving husband, who is also a Kaiser Permanente physician.
About my practice
I approach caring for my patients the way I would want to be cared for and the way I would want my mother and grandmother to be cared for: with respect, compassion, and honesty. I am deeply committed to providing sound, evidence-based care. As an obstetrician-gynecologist, I believe strongly in helping women achieve physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
How I thrive
I am at my best when spending time with my husband and boys, either soaking in the sun at the coast, hiking up steep trails, or enjoying a good movie in the comfort of our home. I am always in awe of their sense of wonder and adventure. Finally, I volunteer in my children's school whenever possible to support their teachers in whatever way I can.
