I strive to provide the safest evidence-based care for patients requiring or requesting anesthesia.

In my spare time I enjoy reading fiction and spending time with my husband and daughters.

Clinical interest for patients

My clinical interests include anesthesia for the pregnant patient, and most of my clinical practice occurs in the labor & delivery suite. This includes medical evaluation during pregnancy, anesthetic care of the patient who needs surgery during her pregnancy, pain control during labor, anesthesia for cesarean delivery, and care of the medically complex pregnant woman around the time of her delivery. As an educator, I have focused my teaching career on the education of medical students and residents.

Research interest for patients

My research interests are focused on providing the safest and most efficient, evidence-based anesthesia care of the obstetric patient before, during and after delivery.

Volunteer activities

I am a volunteer with the 9 Health Fair. I am involved in activities at Augustana Lutheran Church.
