I grew up on the West Coast and graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a Bachelor’s degree in medical anthropology. I worked in public health and outdoor education until deciding to go back to school to pursue medicine, completing my post-baccalaureate studies at Bryn Mawr college followed by medical school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I met my husband in medical school and together we moved to Phoenix for residency training. I completed my residency at Creighton University-Phoenix in Arizona. I am trilingual in French, Spanish, and English and have been active in the field of human rights advocacy through work with Physicians for Human Rights.
I love being an OB/GYN as it allows for the unique opportunity to care for women throughout some of life’s most important transitions. Whether this be the birth of a child, infertility, miscarriage and loss, menopause, or an unexpected health issue, I recognize the immense trust my patient’s place in me to be their guide. I try my very best to meet patients where they are and to be an empathic listener. It is important to me to create an open, comfortable, and safe environment for my patients, and to develop a care plan that fits each individual’s needs. I have special interests in obstetrics, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, general and adolescent gynecology, contraceptive care, and preventative health.
Outside of work I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, travel, and live music, and most of all love spending time with my family and our rescue pup Kody. My husband and I are thrilled to be moving to Colorado to be close to family and friends and look forward to spending time outside enjoying all that Fort Collins has to offer.
