Bio
One of my greatest accomplishments and greatest joys is my family – although I cannot really claim credit for them. My husband and I married shortly after graduating from Stanford, at the ripe old age of 22. Over the next few years we moved several times, completed our schooling and had 4 amazing children. Watching them grow and thrive as been incredible! We love hiking, beach walking and traveling together. The world continues to amaze me with its diversity and beauty.

I am inspired by my patients and honored to be able to participate in some of their most personal moments. I love being part of new lives and expanding families as well as part of women’s lives as they mature and age. It is this love for my patients that keeps me motivated to always try to improve. I do my best to tailor my care to each individual and provide excellent evidence based medical or surgical treatments when needed.

Recently, I have managed to meld my love of medicine, my love of travel, and my desire to get to know people from different places in life, and by participating in several Medical Missions in South America. In addition to being very challenging and personally rewarding, I have gained additional appreciation for the amazing blessings I have here at home. I completely trust and respect my partners here at Salem Clinic and could not imagine a better group of people with whom to share my life.
