Biography

Personal Interests:

Exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband and daughter. Traveling as much as we are able. Taking in baseball games - go Mariners! Enjoying live music and musicals.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in OBGYN?

I chose a career in OB/GYN because it provides the opportunity to take care of women throughout multiple stages in their life. I think this fosters close relationships with patients and helps to build trust and a shared decision making model.

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

Seattle is such an exciting place to live and work. I love the ability to enjoy many aspects of living in a city but also the close proximity to nature. There are endless options for exploring and wonderful people to explore with.
