About Me

The field of obstetrics and gynecology is amazing. I take care of a wide breadth of conditions and am privileged to care for patients during some of the most important milestones in their lives. I provide the full spectrum of general obstetrics and gynecologic care, including gynecologic surgery with a focus on minimally invasive surgical techniques. My goal is to listen carefully and address the unique needs of each individual patient. It is important to me that my patients feel truly heard. I recognize that many of the concerns that patients come to their OBGYN doctor for are very sensitive in nature. I strive to create an environment of care that allows each patient to feel comfortable and safe to share their concerns with me. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, running, yoga, and spending time with my family and friends.
