About Me

I am a physician in obstetrics and gynecology. As far as OB-GYN, I like the variety of being able to help someone throughout their life and spending time with them in the office, seeing them in the hospital for childbirth or surgery. My favorite part of the work is the variety of patients I get to see every day and how I can help each one of them, always in a different way. I want patients to feel comfortable at our office and know that they are going to get quality and personal care. Someone would choose a Duke-affiliated practice to have access to all of the incredible resources and research we offer. Outside of work, I enjoy long-distance running and spending time with my family.
