Hello, and welcome to my Web page. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me.
After growing up in a small town in Iowa, I attended college at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. I lived and worked at a non-profit agency in New York City for a few years, met my husband, and then moved him and our dogs back to Iowa for medical school. Upon completing my residency training in head and neck surgery at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, we were tired of the cold winters and humid summers. I pursued advanced training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at UC Davis, and my husband and I fell in love with the California people and weather. We were thrilled when we were able to move to Los Angeles and start my practice with Kaiser Permanente.
I am board certified in head and neck surgery, with further training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. My specialties include facial plastic surgery, nasal surgery, and facial reconstruction following skin cancer removal, as well as medical and surgical management of thyroid, parotid, and sinus conditions.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I make it a priority to spend quality time with my husband, two boys, and our dog. We enjoy taking full advantage of all the wonderful opportunities to hike, swim, and play outside in beautiful Southern California.
