Pelvic Pain & Sexual Medicine, OB-GYN
University Colorado Medical Center, Denver, CO
Why did you decide to become a physician?
After graduating from high school I went to a six-year combined medical/undergraduate school. One of the best parts of such a program is that you were exposed to patient care right away. It was because of that exposure that I chose the medical profession - I loved the one on one patient care.
What are your clinical areas of interest?
Chronic pelvic pain and vulvodynia, menopausal medicine, cervical and vulvar pathology.
What is your philosophy of patient care?
The only way to help a woman with Chronic Pelvic Pain is to get to know her. How her condition is impacting her quality of life and how we can improve that. Doing this allows us to develop a level of care that will improve her quality of life.
How do you spend your free time? (family, hobbies, interests, volunteer activities, etc.)
Being a mom and wife, cooking, gardening, knitting, teaching religious education and volunteering for the PTO and booster club. I also play tennis, ski and hike.
