I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. Since then, I lived outside of Toronto, Canada for medical school, in Rochester, N.Y. for residency at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and then in Chicago, where I worked for eight years as an Ob/Gyn at a medical center. My husband is originally from Georgia, so we moved back to raise our son and daughter and enjoy the warmer weather! I have a special interest in women's issues and helping a woman become an advocate for her health and reproductive rights is very important to me. I enjoy seeing women of all ages throughout their lifespan: for pregnancy, contraception, fertility, menstrual issues and menopausal concerns. I especially love treating the pediatric and adolescent population and empowering young girls to better their health and welfare, with a no-judgment, open-door policy. I believe education in medicine is a key component to better health care.
I perform Ob/Gyn procedures and have additional training in operative and advanced laparoscopy, including laparoscopic hysterectomies. I also perform vaginal surgeries, including total vaginal hysterectomy. I excel in office procedures for abnormal pap smears, as well and minor gynecologic surgeries in the office setting to avoid admittance to the hospital. I work collaboratively with our sub-specialties, such as maternal fetal medicine, uro-gynecology and gynecologic oncology to ensure you receive the high-quality care you deserve. My office is LGBTQ friendly, and I love to hear about each member as an individual person.
I love yoga, running (with and without my dog), dancing, hiking and reading books. I enjoy all types of music. I find that music warms the soul and can sometimes express more than words, so I can often be found at home with earbuds in, my eyes closed and enjoying my music. My family and I enjoy traveling and have been to many international locations. Over the years, I have enjoyed volunteering for various organizations such as Big Sisters, YMCA and women's shelters. I am excited about extending my branches in Atlanta and becoming an involved physician in the community.
