Bio

Q: What led you to work in breast care?

Ever since I was a young girl I knew I wanted to be a physician. I thought about being an OBGYN because I enjoyed women’s health.  It wasn’t until my third year of medical school during my clerkships that I fell in love with surgery.  At the time, I didn’t know how that would fit in with women’s health because as a general surgeon I could not just operate on women.  Toward the end of my general surgery residency something clicked and it was then that I decided to do a Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship.  I realized I could mainly take care of women and do surgery at the same time!

Q: What is the most rewarding part of your career?

The most rewarding part of my career is when I treat my patients and they are so grateful. It is a good experience for me, because when I help women get the care they need, I’m also helping their families.  It is just an overwhelming satisfaction when I can help save lives and help families keep their loved ones around longer.

Q: What are you most looking forward to about being a part of Summit Health?

The people here at Summit Health work together and get along with each other; that is a big thing.  Being a surgeon, I spend more time at work than with my own family, so the relationships you have with co-workers is very important. Our main goal as a health care system is to take care of the patients, and at the end of the day, we can do that best when we work together as a team.

Q: What hobbies or interests do you enjoy outside of your career?

Every single moment I am not at work I spend with my husband and two little girls.  I am absolutely devoted to my family and they get all my free time.  We enjoy playing  games and just being outside!
