I grew up in a small town in eastern North Carolina and received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Following graduation I worked for four years for a large corporation in their leadership development program. This job allowed me to travel and live in many exciting cities including Nashville, Denver and D.C. While I loved the people I worked with, I began to realize there was a sense of personal fulfillment that was missing. So with the support of my husband and family, I went back to school and I have never regretted my decision to enter the field of medicine.
I received my medical school training at the University of South Carolina, School of Medicine. It was during my clinical rotations that I fell in love with the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology as I instantly felt a connection with my patients and had a strong desire to advocate for women’s health issues. After medical school, I completed my Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics where I refined my clinical and surgical skills.
I feel blessed to have a career that I’m passionate about. I enjoy working at the Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado as it allows me to develop long term relationships with my patients as I help them navigate important milestones in their life including their first gynecologic exam, prenatal care and child birth, surgical management of various gynecologic complaints and the transition through menopause.
My husband and I are excited to be back in Colorado, where we look forward to sharing our love of hiking, biking and skiing with our children. When I’m not working, I also enjoy attending my kids sporting events and taking our dogs on long walks.
