I am originally from just outside of Boston, MA. I started traveling west with school and training, and stayed here in Colorado where I met my husband, who has lived in Denver most of his life. Kaiser Permanente is a great place to work and be a member. The integrated model of care makes it easy to give and get care. Taking care of women is an honor and a privilege. I love to be able to talk with women in the office about what is going on with them, whatever issue they may be having. I absolutely love delivering babies and performing surgeries as well. Ob/Gyn is a great field to be able to care for a woman throughout her life.
I see a wide range of conditions in my clinic from routine health maintenance, contraception counseling, pregnancy care, including many types of high risk pregnancies, surgical consultations, menopause management, etc. My approach is collaborative. I bring the medical expertise/knowledge to the table, but a woman knows her body best, and I like to help support women as they deal with various issues over the course of their lives in a way that suites their needs.
My husband and I have three kids, and he is an Ob/Gyn physician as well, so life is busy. Trying to balance everything is not easy. We like to stay active by running, skiing, and doing things with the kids. We try to eat healthy, but understand that you have to enjoy life too! It's all a balance!
