About

Many years ago I had a high risk pregnancy and the medical team and support staff were the experience that influenced my decision to enter clinical care. From the friendly front desk staff in my health care provider’s office that I saw weekly to the nursing assistant that transported me by wheelchair to my car holding my preemie twins, in the end it was their encouragement and kindness that gave me the strength I needed to get through a very stressful and scary time. It has been 20 years and I still remember them!

I like empowering women in all aspects of their lives including their health. Having personal, trusting relationships with my patients is very important to me and I want them to always feel they can come to me with anything. If I can’t help them I will assist them in finding the help they need.

My approach to care is holistic, which led me to my dual certification in primary care. This allows me to address primary care issues and provide very specialized care to women during adolescence, their reproductive age and later in life. Women should not have to go to two places to receive comprehensive well woman care. This encompasses mental and physical health coupled with with lifestyle challenges and advantages that play a role in maximizing wellness.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, three boys and three dogs traveling, boating and spending time around the Cities.
