Faculty Information


Personal Interests:

I love to be outside running, hiking, camping, or skiing and enjoying the Seattle area’s natural beauty with my family and friends.

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

Reproduction and reproductive health are often fundamentally tied to people’s well-being and quality of life. I chose Ob/GYN because I am passionate about delivering the best quality reproductive healthcare to help individuals live their best lives. I love building relationships and partnerships to help people get the best care possible and make health care choices that are most aligned with their values, preferences, and goals.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by connecting with patients and by working collaboratively with colleagues in medicine and public health who are committed to creating positive change in the world.
