Biography & Education

I enjoy taking care of women throughout all of our life phases. From puberty to post-menopause, there are challenges and joys we face, and opportunities for growth and generosity. I receive tremendous satisfaction providing medical care which improves the quality of life for my patients. I educate my patients about their problems, and strongly focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A large part of my practice is obstetrics, because of the joy I have experienced being a mother.

Personal Interests
I spend my free time with my two children. My son is very active in sports, and my daughter is into music. My other joy is my garden. I grow perennials in the front yard, and vegetables and berries in the back yard. The books on my nightstand are mostly mysteries. My pets are spoiled rotten and get to sleep on the bed.
