About

Bio

Generalist OB/GYN formerly in private practice. I am currently employed with Rochester Regional Health System. I maintain a separate office practice and share call & hospital coverage with an expert team of physicians, midwives and advanced clinical practitioners. I enjoy mentoring our residents in training and serving on various department committees within the hospital system and our residency program. I anticipate continuing to grow my hospital and clinic based practices and am seeking a leadership role within our practice group. I have a young family that brings me great joy and keeps me busy.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
