Special interests
Pregnancy care, including high risk pregnancies. Problems with the bladder and pelvic support. Minimally invasive surgery including hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. Treatment of abnormal bleeding. Women's wellness care.

I grew up in Utah and have lived in many different parts of the country. It was during medical school, when I did a summer internship here in the Willamette Valley, that I fell in love with Oregon. It is a privilege and a blessing to be here and to be able to care for my patients in all stages of life, from helping them through pregnancy to the menopausal transition and afterward. I believe in establishing a collaborative relationship to ensure that health care goals are achieved.

I am married and have three children. We are happy to be part of the Salem community. I enjoy all things outdoors, especially running, hiking and camping. Indoors, I enjoy cooking and watching movies.
