WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I specialize in adolescent and young adult medicine. I love that in this field I am able to serve as a primary care physician to young people ages 12-26, while also providing specialized care to this population. The types of care I specialize in include addressing young people's reproductive health concerns (for example, menstrual or contraceptive issues), chronic illnesses, behavioral challenges, and developmental difficulties. My focus is on providing high quality medical care to youth through respect for each individual, support of their physical and emotional growth, and education to empower them to be thriving, independent adults. I also spend a substantial amount of my time being an advocate for young people through work on health policy. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time in the outdoors with my husband and two daughters.
