Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
From a young age, I have always had a strong desire to serve others. As early as elementary school, I developed a passion for math and science. It quickly became evident that medicine was the best-suited career choice for me. Practicing medicine has always been a calling, as well as a privilege. Both of my parents were educators, while I did not follow in their footsteps and pursue a profession in education; I recognize the responsibility that doctors have in educating patients. I am committed to ensuring that patients have a clear understanding of their health care options so that they can confidently participate in shared decision making. I chose a focus on women's health because I aspired to tackle the barriers I saw women face nationally and abroad when accessing healthcare.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am a physician who listens and works collaboratively with my patients. I take pride in keeping my patients well informed and practice cutting edge, evidence-based medicine. I understand the value of patient education in enhancing not only knowledge but also the patient's desire to maintain or improve their health.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
In my spare time, I enjoy reading all genres, from self-help to fiction. I have a passion for learning and enjoy enrichment courses. I am an active member of a local school board and spend time volunteering in my community. I love crafting and find it inspiring and relaxing. Most importantly, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and our Yorkie, Lace. Nothing else rejuvenates me more than spending time with my family.
