Faculty Information

Biography

Personal Interests:

When not in the office, I enjoy taking advantage of all the Pacific Northwest has to offer. My husband and I spend time with family and friends exploring the food and music scenes, as well as hiking or SUP'ing around the Seattle area with our dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I enjoy practicing whatever my favorite exercise trend of the month is, as well as swimming on a more regular basis. I am a long time violist and violinist, and play in the viola section of the Puget Sound Symphony Orchestra.

Why did you pursue a career in OB/GYN?

I enjoy helping women make pregnancy a time of lifestyle change and health promotion. I enjoy assisting in the management of high risk pregnancies. I also enjoy assisting women in finding contraceptive options individualized to each patient's unique experience and lifestyle.
