Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I am passionate about providing comprehensive care to women, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up and have lived all over the United States: Wisconsin, Florida, Boston, and San Francisco. I received my undergraduate degree from Harvard University and then attended medical school at UC San Francisco. I moved to San Diego to do my residency training at UC San Diego and have stayed ever since! I developed a passion for medicine during my travels abroad and found my love for women’s health care and obstetrics/gynecology during my training. I have done medical volunteer work in Cambodia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Tanzania, and I look forward to doing more in the future.
About my practice
I believe that medicine is a partnership between the physician and the patient and am committed to using medicine based on evidence and current research to guide you to the health decisions that best fit your goals. I provide OB/GYN care for women of all ages and all periods of life, from the teenage years to pregnancy to postmenopausal women. I have a special interest in minimally invasive surgery, fibroids and heavy menstrual bleeding, adolescent gynecology, and transgender care.
How I thrive
I love visiting museums and art galleries, eating delicious foods, playing board games, scuba diving, and traveling.
