I love what I do for a living. I enjoy taking care of women of all ages from puberty to menopause, and also in between to deliver some beautiful babies! I treasure the relationships I am privileged to be a part of with each of my patients. I look forward to helping women through their stages of life and providing each of them complete and compassionate care. I provide a spectrum of services from management of low risk to high risk pregnancies; annual well woman visits; management of abnormal Pap smears; contraception; abnormal menstrual bleeding; as well as perimenopause and menopausal related concerns. I am trained in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery as well as hysteroscopic procedures.

I believe in a trial of labor after a cesarean birth with consultation and guidance, and will always offer my post-cesarean patients this important option. I decided to open this practice after much heartfelt soul searching and thought for my family, as well as my current patients and those yet to establish care. I feel this is the best way to serve my patients, and fill a chasm between large corporate-owned health care facilities and the female patients they are supposed to help, but often frustrate.

My husband and I reside in south Overland Park with our two children as well as our dog. Much of our time away from work is spent operating a taxi service for our children, neither of whom have encountered an activity that they didn’t like (aside from chores), but we do find time to enjoy Royals baseball, KU basketball, and going to concerts. I also like jogging and being active with my children outdoors.
