WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a breast surgeon with additional training in clinical cancer genetics. I primarily treat patients with breast concerns, male and female, benign and cancerous, and I also work with patients to determine their risk for cancer and formulate surveillance and/or management strategies based on their risk. I really love working with patients, families, and communities. Every case is different and helping each patient and family navigate the process is a large part of my job, in addition to the technical aspects of surgery. Outside of work, I spend time with my husband, daughters, and pets. I enjoy hiking waterfalls and have hiked some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world from California to North Carolina to Brazil.
