Growing up as the child of a military family, I lived 11 places by the time I was 18. I feel this has given me the ability to connect with folks from many places and backgrounds. I can better serve my patients if I understand who they are in the context of their communities and families.
I enjoy taking care of patients throughout their lifetime and appreciate being present with families during times of transition; such as the addition of a family member through birth or adoption, or the transition of a patient or their loved one into hospice or palliative care.
My passions in medicine include obstetrics, caring for pregnant women, caring for newborns and children, and helping patients make choices about their sexual and reproductive health.
I feel called to care for others and find great joy in this calling. It started with caring for my siblings from an early age and it’s included working as a nanny, as a preschool/kindergarten teacher, and caring for my grandmother at the end of her life.
