Family medicine is the one specialty that cares for the entire family and offers the continuity of care I look for in a doctor for my own family. That is why I find my profession exciting and rewarding. I enjoy helping patients make healthy decisions, thereby enabling them to take control of their own health. My special interests include adolescent medicine, women's health and sports medicine. Away from work, I love spending time with my husband and daughters, running, gardening and playing marimba.
