Faculty Information

Biography

Personal Interests:

Enjoys spending time with her spouse and children, running, skiing and any outdoors.

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

I knew I wanted to be a surgeon the first day I walked into the operating room as a medical student. I ended up choosing the field of gynecologic oncology as it was the perfect blend of surgery, women's health, and long term meaningful patient relationships.

What do you like about working at UW Medicine?

It truly is a center of excellence. I am proud to work here as I know that we make a positive difference in patients' lives. There is a great sense of community and shared goals of providing the highest level of care.

What are your favorite things about living in the Seattle area?

Growing up in Alaska, I love that Seattle is fairly green, for a city. I like being close to outdoor activities in the mountains and water, but still being able to enjoy all the cultural benefits of a city. It is a wonderful place to raise a family, and of course the coffee!

What inspires you?

My patients for their strength and my colleagues for their passion.
