Faculty Information

Biography

Personal Interests:

Trail running, hiking with my family, traveling, reading.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in OB/GYN?

I decided to become an OBGYN while I was in high school. I grew up in a rural community and was inspired by midwives who helped women have healthy pregnancies and births.

What do you like about working at UW Medicine?

My career at UW Medicine has a perfect balance of clinical care, research and teaching. I love that I do something different every day. On some days I see patients, and on other days I work on research that may impact the future of women's health care. I also enjoy teaching medical students and OBGYN residents to help shape a new generation of physicians.
