I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where I completed the majority of my medical training. I moved to North Dakota where I practiced for eleven years before relocating to the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii in 2010 with my husband, three children and our dog.
Because my mother suffered from a chronic illness, I was exposed to the world of medicine from a very young age and decided that I wanted to be a part of making peoples lives better. During medical school, I chose to pursue a career in obstetrics and gynecology (Ob/Gyn) medicine because you get to be a part of the whole birth experience. As an Ob/Gyn physician, I have the privilege of caring for pregnant moms and their families. At Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, we truly care about the overall well-being of our members, not just treating their medical problems but taking care of all of their health care needs. My colleagues and I feel supported as we strive to provide the highest quality of medical care to our patients and members.
After spending most of my life in cold climates, I am thoroughly enjoying the year round tropical Hawaiian weather. I try to be outdoors as much as possible and enjoy walking, swimming, reading and going to the beach with my family.
