No one can predict with absolute confidence a medical outcome, or guarantee the health of a patient. Providing excellent medical care means guiding individuals through these uncertainties. Labor is the most intense event a women or couple will experience, and the best outcomes require excellent medical care. However, the daily problems of existence also require attention and support. While aspiring to be a physician whose opinions are sought and respected by colleagues, it is also critical to me that I am approachable, open-minded and available to my patients for these moments in their lives.Additional Information

Living and playing with my two boys and husband is what makes me most happy. My physical and emotional health requires many activities such as tennis, rock climbing, biking, pilates and playing bass guitar. My family life has only increased my interest in adolescent development, female health and the norms of aging (as well as lacrosse ultimate frisbee and football!).
