Clinical Interests
While I enjoy all areas of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, some of my specific clinical interests include Adult Congenital Heart Disease, multifetal gestations (twins, and higher-order multiples), and complex deliveries (breech extraction of the second twin, operative vaginal delivery).

Care Philosophy
In Maternal-Fetal Medicine, great medical care takes being an expert in the field while also understanding complicated pregnancies are not just a "medical issue". I strive to work as a team with my patients (and their families) to ensure that the plan we make together works for them. Patients should always feel that they have a voice and it is my goal to ensure that they feel heard and feel central in all decisions that we make together.

Personal Interests
I grew up in Alaska and first moved to Colorado for my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Being outdoors has been a part of my life since I was born and these days, in my spare time, I enjoy hiking and camping with my husband, kiddo, and two dogs.

Volunteer Activities
Outside of medicine, I volunteer with a local dog rescue. Both of my pups started as fosters and became family.

Public Speaking
Yes
The long-term affects of pregnancy on people with congenital heart disease
