I was born and raised in the Boston area and attended college at Harvard University. I completed medical school in Cleveland and moved to Seattle for my residency training at the University of Washington. My husband, who was raised in Portland, and I are excited to live and work together in the Northwest. I chose a career in medicine because it allows me to combine my interests in physiology, problem-solving, and communication, and wanted to specialize in ob-gyn as it provides a unique privilege to care for women throughout their lives.
About my practice
I enjoy providing obstetric and gynecologic care, with particular interests in preventive care including preconception counseling, full-spectrum contraception, and cervical cancer screening. I also have a strong interest in gynecology and minimally-invasive vaginal and laparoscopic surgery. I am excited to be a Kaiser Permanente provider because of its integrated model of health care, attention to evidence-based medicine, and emphasis on preventive care.
How I thrive
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, as well as our family and friends. We often spend our free time outdoors, whether hiking in the Gorge, surfing at the coast, or skiing at Mt. Hood. I also enjoy cooking and crossword puzzles.
