My philosophy of care is to provide the level of care for my patients that I would want my family to receive. This includes evidence-based approaches to surgical diseases, shared decision-making with patients and their families, and collaboration with a multidisciplinary team. I enjoy getting to know my patients and understanding their goals. At a broader level, I am involved in research focused on patient outcomes and quality of care.
I enjoy running, adventures in the mountains, skiing, traveling, and spending time with my husband and young child.
