About Me

I grew up in South Florida and attended medical school in Gainesville. My husband and I and our three children enjoy the outdoors, traveling, exercising, and discovering fun things to do.

My job is my passion. I am grateful to be able to take care of women during such a critical time in their lives. It is important that I create an individualized treatment plan for each patient that prioritizes their goals and wishes. I include caregivers (both family and friends) as an essential part of my treatment plan for my patient’s well-being.
