The Sharp Experience

I take the time to listen to my patients concerns in order to recognize individual goals.



No stranger to injuries and rehabilitation, I sustained an ankle fracture as well as tendon lacerations in two separate seasons as a high school varsity athlete and team captain. I enjoy helping patients get back to their favorite hobbies and sports. I feel that practicing medicine means spending one-on-one time with a patient to focus on their individual problem, and their unique goals in recovery. This also means cultivating a caring team of nurses and assistants within the office to make patients’ time as comfortable as possible during their recovery. Both non-operative and surgical options are discussed for shared patient and physician decision making.

Outside of work, I enjoy running, volunteering for Girls on the Run (a local organization to help middle school girls) and with Hands to Love (a national congenital limb differences camp) and swimming at La Jolla Cove with my husband.
