I grew up in the Quad Cities and love living in the Midwest (even winters!!). I enjoy all sports - especially golf and biking. When I'm not working or at home, I like to travel with my son Michael. Also, my Catholic faith is important to how I live my life and practice medicine.
Any true feelings of why you are a doctor and why you deserve a patient's trust to care for them?
I feel truly blessed to provide care for women. Every patient is a unique human being and it is a privilege to take care of them. For me, being an OB/GYN is a vocation, not just a job.
