  • Practicing Specialty: Cardiology
  • Doctor

As a cardiologist, I have the privilege of caring for patients with heart disease. My particular interests include women's heart disease, primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and the use of interpretation of various cardiac imaging tests to evaluate the structure and function of the heart.

I believe the best possible outcomes are achieved when the doctor and patient work together toward patient-centered goals, with a focus on improving health and restoring quality of life. I am committed to educating my patients regarding their cardiovascular conditions so that together we can make decisions that best fit their needs.

In my personal life, I am a busy mother of two and find great joy in spending time with family and friends.

I am a member of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association.
