Things you might not know about Me

Birthplace: Kalamazoo, MI

Places I've Lived: Brussels, Belgium; Williamsburg, VA; Detroit, MI; Washington DC

Education/Training: The College of William & Mary; Wayne State University School of Medicine; George Washington University Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program

Why OB/GYN? It's such a unique field in Medicine. During the course of any given day, I might counsel someone regarding birth control, discuss treatment options for menopausal symptoms, provide advice to expecting mothers, and even squeeze in a delivery or two! I think the bond that forms between patients and their Ob/Gyn is truly special and for that I am grateful.

Who Knew: I make a pretty tasty chili, I lived in Belgium when I was in elementary school, and I was diagnosed with cancer when I was eighteen.

Travel Memories: I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to see and photograph many exotic locations. Most notable? African safari, India, and Thailand.

Someday I plan to go to: Patagonia and Antarctica

These are some things I do in my spare time: I enjoy photography, hiking with my dog Wilson, and renovating my house - which seems to be in a perpetual state of (dis?)repair.

A really big accomplishment: Being named a Washingtonian TopDoc, buying my first home, and adopting one of the coolest dogs ever.

Favorite Book: Anything by Erik Larson - he has a remarkable ability to weave factual history into a page-turning mystery.

Favorite TV Show: I'm a sucker for almost any HBO or Netflix series.

Favorite Words: pomplemousse, "for sure"

Favorite Quote: "Fight Fiercely" - it's a family motto coined by my grandfather

Favorite Food: Cheese!

What superpower would you most like to have? I think I'd love to be able to fly.
