Where did you attend medical school?

Attended University of Arizona School of Medicine. Residency at Banner Good Samaritan in Phoenix

How long have you been in Arizona?

I have been in Arizona since 1987. I graduated from high school in Scottsdale and then went to U of A for both undergrad and medical school. After finishing residency, I moved back to Scottsdale to join an established private practice.

What do you enjoy the most about your field of medicine?

I am so fortunate to truly enjoy my job! I chose OB/GYN because it offers continuity of care throughout a woman's lifetime. I enjoy in office procedures and preventative medicine as well as gynecologic surgery but the obstetrics is what really attracted me to this particular field. The relationships that I have established with my patients over the years are so special to me.

Can you tell us a little about your family?

I am married to my wonderful husband Eric, a commercial airline pilot. We have two beautiful and energetic children Lily (6) and Evan (4).

Do you own any pets?

We love our "big" dog Bella and our puppy Yorkie named Roxy, who is the newest addition to our family.

Do you have any hobbies?

Our family is always on the go. We enjoy hiking, camping, swimming, traveling and just hanging out with friends and family. When I have some down time (which doesn't happen very often), I love to curl up with a good book. I may not be the greatest cook but I really do enjoy entertaining.
