Background/personal life:

I was born in Sacramento, California but raised in Missoula, Montana. My mother is a Nurse Practitioner and she inspired me to practice medicine. I completed my undergraduate degree in Seattle, Washington followed by medical school in Phoenix, Arizona. I finally returned to California when I moved to Bakersfield for OB/GYN residency at Kern Medical Center.

 

Why did you want to practice in Bakersfield?

My husband’s family is here and Bakersfield has the hidden charm of a small town but in the form of a California city still relatively close to all the things we enjoy doing, but without the insane traffic.

 

When you aren’t hard at work at your office, what do you do to relax?

I love to spend time hiking, camping, fishing, and visiting the Central Coast with my husband and son.

 

What do you enjoy most about your work as an OB/GYN?

To me, a good physician is a not merely a provider of medical care, but also an educator, a comforter, and confidant. As an OB/GYN, I feel privileged to care for and be entrusted by women during the most vulnerable and intimate times in their lives.
