“All of the pressure and inaccurate information out there nowadays makes it really hard to be a teenager or young woman at times. I like being able to give medically accurate information in a fun, nonthreatening way and create a safe space for my patients to ask questions.”
Areas of expertise
  • Pediatric and adolescent gynecology
  • Noncontraceptive uses of intrauterine devices in adolescents 
  • Transgender and nonbinary care
“I love working with patients and their families. Being able to reassure them that they’re OK or intervening when they’re not is unbelievably rewarding and drives me to put my best foot forward each day.”
