Why do you love what you do?
I love caring for patients throughout their lives and using my skills and knowledge to help them optimize their gynecologic and reproductive health. I enjoy seeing patients annually and hearing about their lives and how I can help them feel well. No one day is exactly like another and I learn something new from patients each day.
Why did you choose Essex County OB/GYN?
I came to work for Essex County OB/GYN in 2000 because the group was cohesive and felt like family. Many years later, I am grateful to have chosen a group of caregivers who respect my opinion, whom I admire, and whom I trust to care for my patients. I cannot imagine practicing OB/GYN anywhere else. I have had two pregnancies with Essex County OB/GYN and two beautiful beginnings at Beverly Hospital.
My favorite vacation
I stayed at a guest ranch in Montana and participated in all the activities the ranch had to offer – once with my family and once with my girlfriends because I needed to go back to the mountains.
Outside of work, you'll find me...
hunting for sea glass in the summer, XC skiing or snowshoeing in the winter, baking, gardening, or sipping Earl Grey tea
