“My practice goals are two-fold, first to provide excellent, evidence based care and second to ensure that their care is tailored to what is possible and preferable for the individual woman”.
Personally, she is a mother to three very active boys. She spends her free time playing with her children, running, doing yoga and meditation, and traveling. She lives in a bilingual household and is proficient in Spanish
