About Me

I grew up in eastern Iowa and attended college, medical school, and completed my residency training at the University of Iowa. I worked in a private practice in Boulder, Colorado, for two years prior to joining Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

I am board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. I believe that what we put into our bodies and how we move our bodies has the greatest impact on our overall health. I listen and seek to understand my patients’ questions and concerns, and I will work with you to make treatment plans that meet your needs and lifestyle. I have learned to honor each patient as an individual with their own story, despite the standardization of medicine. My home office is the Rock Creek Medical Offices.

How I thrive

I thrive by spending time with my children. We love to move together, whether it is hiking, biking, snowboarding, telemark skiing, practicing for football, hockey or soccer, or just playing in the park. We are thriving more by eating vegetables out of our own garden and trying to reduce our impact on the environment in many ways.
