Growing up the granddaughter and niece of surgeons, my decision to become a physician came very early in life. Having wonderful, strong female role models throughout my life has given me a passion for working with and caring for women, making Obstetrics and Gynecology a natural career for me. I have a true love for obstetrics. I cherish sharing the experiences of pregnancy and the joys of bringing new life to a family. I also enjoy the ability to care for my patients throughout all stages of life. Gynecology allows me the opportunity to have that continuity of care from adolescence through menopause and beyond. I strive to educate my patients and establish a trusting, lasting relationship. The more I know about their health history, families, and personal preferences, the better I can care for them.
