My BS was in pharmacy. It was a great background for the practice of medicine. I learned how to compound medications myself so I have always had confidence in compounded products. Hormone therapy has been an important part of my practice. I am a strong believer in the use of bioidentical hormones, whether compounded by a pharmacist or offered by a pharmaceutical company. I delivered babies for 20 years. My oldest child has autism so when I stopped OB I began to study nutrition and functional medicine. Over the years my practice has evolved into the practice of wellness for women of all ages. I love working with perimenopausal women helping them to become menopausal without symptoms. I also love working with young women before they begin child-bearing. Being the healthiest version of yourself is my challenge to them -before they get pregnant! I believe that healthy nutrition, adequate sleep, and a little exercise are the cornerstones of health.
