I chose to become a doctor because I enjoyed science from a young age and had a personal interest in medicine because my grandmother died of breast cancer. As a breast radiologist, I can assess patient risks for breast cancer, and use mammograms, ultrasounds, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) to improve patient recommendations and outcomes. All patients should be aware of their breast health and should feel comfortable seeking care for routine screening mammograms. When patients have new lumps, skin changes, or nipple discharge they should seek medical care immediately. I enjoy taking care of patients by showing them their imaging, reassuring them when everything is normal, and guiding them to the next step when they need additional care. My areas of special interest include: promoting breast screening in all women starting at age 40, encouraging early screening for patients at high risk for breast cancer and breast screening in transgender and gender diverse patients. Outside of work, I enjoy exercising, cooking and spending time with my family and cats.
