I grew up in the suburbs of New York City and attended college at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA. I originally planned to be a chemist, but ultimately decided to attend medical school because I liked the more personal aspect of medicine. I then moved to the Midwest to pursue a medical degree at Washington University in St. Louis. After a lifetime of experiencing the changing seasons, I opted to move to sunny California for residency at UC San Diego. I then worked for a year in Berkeley, California before deciding to make the move to the Rockies.
My interests include benign gynecologic surgery (including minimally invasive surgery), contraceptive care in women with complicated medical issues, and striving to help women achieve a meaningful and safe birth experience. I have a passion for practicing evidence-based medicine and encourage my patients play an active role in their clinical decision-making.
Outside of work I enjoy traveling, watching independent films, and reading celebrity memoirs. My hobbies include finding new ways to enjoy avocados and trying to get my 10,000 steps every day.
