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

High risk obstetrics provides an opportunity to take care of patients during a unique and important time in their lives. I enjoy helping patients navigate the challenges of high-risk pregnancies and obtain the best outcome possible for both baby and parent.

What do you like about working at UW Medicine?

I like working at UW Medicine as we are a leader in high-risk pregnancy care for the Puget Sound region. We strive to provide up to date evidence-based care, patient-centered care, and emphasize teamwork and communication in all aspects of our work.

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

I enjoy living in Seattle because of easy access to incredible outdoor activities year-round and amazing food.
