Biography plus


I am honored to serve as the medical director of the Breast Health Center at Sharp Memorial Hospital, a nationally recognized, comprehensive breast health program that focuses on prevention, education, early detection and advanced treatment. My practice is limited to the care of both benign and malignant breast disease.
I make it my job to provide current and state-of-the-art information to my patients and their families in a manner that is understandable and compassionate so that together we can formulate a treatment plan that bests suits each situation. I work collaboratively with my medical colleagues because I think it is important to use a multidisciplinary approach when treating breast cancer patients.
Outside of work I enjoy jigsaw puzzles, reading, running and spending time with my husband and two daughters.
