Why did you decide to become a physician?
When I was six-years-old I told my parents "I am going to deliver babies when I grow up." I've always wanted to be a physician and take care of people.
What are your clinical areas of interest?
I enjoy taking care of the obstetrical patient and love being a part of the journey, the delivery and everything in between. I enjoy doing in-office procedures that include sterilizations and ablations. I also like to keep up with modern advances in surgery, including minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery.
What is your philosophy of patient care?
I focus on the needs of the patient, to individualize their care and make them a part of the plan through good communication and support.
How do you spend your free time? (family, hobbies, interests, volunteer activities, etc.)
Running – I love anything from a weekend 5K to training for an upcoming marathon. I enjoy reading a great book, having dinners with friends, playing with my dog - Dakota and of course cheering on the Husker football team, Go Big Red!
