Faculty Information

Biography

Personal Interests:

In my free time, I enjoy fitness training and cycling. 

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

I like that it's good mix of medicine and surgery. I have also found that assisting women to have safe and normal deliveries is very gratifying. 

What do you like about working at UW Medicine?

Working at UW is never boring. We are constantly learning, which then allows us to provide the best possible care to our patients.
