I grew up in San Diego, and completed my undergraduate education in Biology at UCLA. I spent a few years pursuing research in animal behavior and/learning before pursing my passion for medicine. My medical degree took me across the continental US and internationally. I completed a general surgery internship in Burlington VT before moving to Cincinnati OH where I completed my Obstetrics & Gynecology residency. I currently enjoy all the diversity of my practice, and put focus on helping my patients to understand their health and take part in directing their care.
My husband and I have shared a love of the outdoors and are very excited to be living in the Pacific Northwest. My other interests include running, rollerblading, and reading Science Fiction/Fantasy books.
