“Caring for each of my patients through the different phases of life—from preconception counseling to fertility to menopause—has been most satisfying.”
I completed my undergraduate degree at Duke University in Electrical Engineering, and then received a Masters of Engineering at the University of Utah in Biomedical Engineering. I did research and development in engineering for 10 years before going to medical school, including work on the Jarvik-7 artificial heart, ventricular assist devices and cochlear implants. I also worked in computer graphics and medical ultrasound development.
I am a third generation OB/GYN provider; my father and grandfather were OB/GYN's, and my grandmother was a nurse midwife. The OB/GYN rotation in medical school solidified my genetic predisposition to the specialty.
Why The Everett Clinic?
My reasons for joining The Everett Clinic were multiple. It's a great organization with a strong, high quality OBGYN department. There are abundant resources for referrals to specialists and a strong primary care network for my patients. Another aspect that appealed to me was that The Everett Clinic is physician-owned; I feel it is important to have a clinical perspective in business decisions that ultimately affect patient care.
