After earning my bachelor’s degree in San Diego, I moved to the Big Apple — New York City — to pursue my medical degree. During medical school, I had the opportunity to work with outstanding obstetricians and gynecologists in the Bronx as well as in Ethiopia and Uganda, where I fell in love with the field of women's health. I completed my residency and fellowship in Irvine, California. My husband and I then volunteered with the Peace Corps and Seed Global Health, teaching at a medical school in Mbale, Uganda, for one year. We are happy to call the Pacific Northwest home.
About my practice
As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I have the opportunity to provide comprehensive care to women throughout their reproductive life and beyond. My practice focuses on educating patients to help them make the best health-care decisions for themselves and their growing families. In the hospital setting, I enjoy working with all members of the healthcare team to improve practices and policies in an effort to provide the safest and most up-to-date care.
How I thrive
Every day I stay active by doing yoga, running, or hiking in the great outdoors. When I’m not outside, I enjoy painting, curling up with a good book, or cooking delicious meals for dinner gatherings. I also love traveling and experiencing the many rich cultures, cuisines, and landscapes throughout the United States and abroad.
