 I was doing my residency in Ob/Gyn and did a rotation on REI in my third year. I was fascinated by the technology and felt that his would be an area that would be changing and moving forward in my lifetime. I love helping couples become families.

Mother Teresa

I am a Candy Crush addict. I like the mental challenge of the different levels and I feel good when I complete the level. I am very involved in my church and do activities that help disadvantaged people.

I have been in several practices in my career. I find that Shady Grove is well organized and centered around patient care as the main objective. The lab is top notch. For such a large company there really is a feeling of family between the staff.

Cruise to Alaska

I am inspired by patients continuously. Many patients have to conquer such obstacles even to come in for the first appointment. The courage they show inspires me to give them the best treatment every day.

Listening to their story and how it affects different aspects of their life. Talking about other things in their life and to let them know their value to me as a person, not just a patient.

Quiet, introverted, positive and an optimist. I notice small details. I have deep feelings that don’t always show on the surface. I care about others’ welfare.
