Faculty Information

Biography

Personal Interests:

My specialties are fertility/infertility care, LGTBQ* care including gender-affirming hormone treatments, mood disorders, and lactation; and, as a Naturopathic Physician, I provide safe, research-based integrative care for pregnancy and gynecology including nutrition, supplements, and herbs in addition to medications. My passion is providing empowering and collaborative care, including true informed choice, with those I serve.

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

To support people in having evidence-based choice and power over their own bodies and health and to provide high-quality relationship-based medical care to families through the sacred transition to parenthood.

What do you like about working at UW Medicine?

The focus on research and evidence balanced with providing patient-centered care.

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

The mountains and the water for outdoor adventures! And, the commitment to inclusivity and social justice across many arenas.

What inspires you?

Being part of communities that are dedicated to anti-racism work and LGBTQ* inclusivity/safety work.
