Why did you decide to pursue a career in OBGYN?

I chose a career in obstetrics and gynecology because the choices folk make regarding their reproductive and sexual health can have ramifications throughout their lives. As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I am well suited to give people the information and workup they need to make the choices that best serve them.

What do you like about working at UW Medicine?

I enjoy the camaraderie I feel working with service-minded colleagues and learners.

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

I enjoy the fresh air, great food, and good people here in Seattle.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by the goodness within people and the genuine connections I make with the folk I serve.
