I have the privilege of caring for women from adolescence through menopause and beyond. Our well-staffed practice offers a wide range of clinical services to assist our patients with their reproductive health. I love providing both acute management and long-term follow-up and am eager to foster relationships to last throughout my career. From minimally invasive gynecology and personalized surgical options to helping patients build the family of their dreams, I am so humbled to be such an intimate part of women’s lives.


What are your goals for the future?
In addition to my clinical duties at LRGO, I have also had the honor of serving as the medical director for the Arkansas Pregnancy Resource Center. I would love to see it expand its services to more women in need.

If you weren’t doing this job, what would you be doing?
A full-time wife and mother to my two amazing kiddos. And maybe a children’s librarian, watching imaginations take flight through books.

What’s a fun fact about you that would surprise people? 
I love to tap dance and have been caught practicing in empty elevators. My one hour of class a week is such a welcome time for myself. I’m also learning to love yoga and the peace that it brings.

Knowing what you know now, what’s the best advice you could have given yourself when you were first starting out?
You’ll wonder how you will go without sleep during medical school and residency, but like Mindy Kaling says, “The thing is, when you are literally living your life’s dream you don’t want to be sleeping. You want to be awake.”

How did you know this is what you wanted to do?
My grandmother was a nurse midwife in Scotland and Canada. She had always told me how wonderful it was to attend deliveries and watch couples turn into families. In medical school, I learned firsthand how right she was.
