Philosophy of Care
I believe my role as a physician is to provide my patients with a compassionate and listening ear, to give them the most evidence-based and up-to-date information, and to partner with them to make health care decisions that honor their individual values and preferences.
Also, I welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender patients and families into our practice. We offer health services to patients on an equal basis, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status. Please contact our office if you have questions.
My mom graduated from nursing school when I was 4 years old, and she became a labor and delivery nurse. Her enthusiasm and care for her patients were transformative for me as well; I knew from a very young age that I would become an OB/GYN. When I was almost 17, my mom had my baby brother, and she invited me to be in the delivery room with her. My baby brother became my very first birth, and I was hooked.
Beyond caring for patients, I spend most of my time off with my husband and two young boys. We enjoy discovering new parks, family bike rides, and being outdoors as much as possible. I am also an enthusiastic brand new soccer mom! When not chasing toddlers, I also try to sneak in some jogging and reading.

- Clinical interest for patients
I am interested in women's health across the reproductive spectrum, from adolescent gynecology through menopause. I am particularly passionate about obstetrics, and also really enjoy complex contraception and helping women with concerns about their bleeding.
- Research interest for patients
I currently am not actively engaged in clinical research. However, I have a Master's in clinical research, and previously did a project on B-Lynch suture placement and its potential future reproductive impacts, which was published in the Green journal in 2014. I am most interested in research that directly impacts our clinical practice, such as data on C-section risks, preeclampsia, prevention of spontaneous preterm birth, etc.
