My goal is to provide evidence-based medical care that makes sense. I decided to become a physician at the age of eight, after my own diagnosis with a benign bone cyst, which required multiple surgeries through early adolescence. I was inspired by my orthopedic surgeon at the time, who left a positive impact on my life.
I strongly believe in the importance of clear, compassionate communication and strive to ensure my patients understand and agree with medical decisions and goals. I endeavor to emphasize and support wellness through diet, exercise and healthy living as a critical component to physical and mental well-being and to disease prevention. I thoroughly enjoy being a family physician, finding fulfillment in the broad scope of care, the challenges and the human interaction.
I am a mother of three and enjoy spending time with my husband and kids. I enjoy physical fitness whenever I can find the time — running, mountain biking, tennis and hiking keep me balanced.
