What do you like about working at UW Medicine?

The people with whom I have the privilege to work. I truly appreciate being part of a team that genuinely cares about patients and their families in such a unique time of their lives. In addition, I love working with co-workers that are academically curious with the goal of improving health for women.

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

The physical beauty of the trees, mountains and water is amazing. The food ... oh, how I love the food.
