I was raised on the West Coast and have lived in the California Bay Area; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington. I'm happy to return to Portland after living in Washington, DC during my Obstetrics and Gynecology residency training. I chose to practice medicine so that I could help women be healthy and enjoy life with their loved ones.
About my practice
I love practicing general Obstetrics and Gynecology. I adore helping women through pregnancy and believe in avoiding intervention whenever possible, but am glad to use my skills to help should complications arise. I have particular interest in high-risk obstetrics, contraception, and menopausal transition. I was trained extensively in minimally-invasive procedures including laparoscopy and office procedures. I strive to get people back to their everyday activities as soon as possible.
How I thrive
I thrive by spending time with my family and friends. My husband is an engineer, and reminds me there is a world outside medicine! We both love exploring the Pacific Northwest with our energetic young ones - our daughter and our Australian Sheppard. We love good food and trying new restaurants and cuisines.
