Clinical Interests
My interests include congenital anomalies (conditions present at birth) of the reproductive tract, contraceptive and menstrual management for the medically complicated adolescent, differences of sex development (intersex), gynecological care for transgender patients, and management of ovarian cysts.

Care Philosophy
I was drawn to both the medical and surgical aspects of obstetrics and gynecology, as well as the continuity of care I provide adolescent patients as they transition into young women and adulthood. I believe in patient centered care and strive to reach shared decisions with my patients by understanding preferences and values.
