I am passionate about all areas of women’s health but especially prenatal care, perinatal mental health, adolescent gynecology, contraception, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
Why do you love what you do?
I love being able to help women receive the best possible care. I strive to be a safe place where my patients can develop a relationship with a healthcare provider who will listen to them, guide and coach them in meeting their health goals in the context of their unique life experiences.
Why did you choose Essex County OB/GYN?
I chose Essex County OB/GYN because I wanted to be part of a caring group of providers who work collaboratively to provide holistic, patient-centered care.
Outside of work, you'll find me...
spending time with my family (my husband, 4 daughters, and 2 dogs), running, hiking, reading, watching hockey, or doing all things Peloton.
My favorite North Shore spot
is Cape Hedge Beach in Rockport. We have family in Rockport and our girls have grown up going to this breathtakingly beautiful spot.
One interesting thing about me
is that I played hockey growing up. I still spend a lot of time at rinks, usually either coaching or watching my daughter play and occasionally I play in an adult women’s league.
