I enjoy working in all areas of women's health care, from an adolescent's first gynecologic exam to dealing with women in their menopausal years. I have a particular interest in dealing with women in the perimenopausal period and the specific health concerns during this important time of transition. I like to learn about health care in other areas and have had the opportunity to do medical mission work in Nicaragua and Honduras. I hope to continue doing short-term medical mission trips throughout my career. I am married and have twin daughters and a very spoiled beagle.
