I always knew I wanted to be a doctor because my dad was a physician and I loved hearing his stories about working with patients. I chose to become an OB-GYN because I like taking care of women during one of the most difficult times in their lives and helping them get to a safe delivery. Having my son Parker helped me realize that it truly does take a village to raise a child and help a mother through the postpartum period. I like to spend a little extra time with my patients to go through their records and experiences, so we can come to shared decisions about their care. I don’t tell my patients what will be done, we decide together what the best approach would be.
I came to Mountain Park because of the mission and patient population. I’m really proud of the amount of resources we offer our patients at every stage of their life.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and baking, but I’m also working toward a Master of Science degree in Medical and Healthcare Simulation from Drexel University. I serve as a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. My areas of interest in the field include the treatment of psychiatric diseases in pregnancy, assisting patients through difficult social situations during pregnancy, gestational diabetes and hypertension.
