Here I share the stories of life as a patient, a doctor and a mother. I hope they will nurture understanding and trust between those who suffer and those who heal.
My path to becoming a physician was circuitous.
While in graduate school, I was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. Cancer distilled my life, helping to clarify how I wanted to live and grow. It confirmed my calling – to care for others as a doctor.
After medical school in New York, pediatrics training in Boston and several cancer recurrences, I now practice and live with my husband and two children near the majestic Rocky Mountains. I am learning to find peace amidst uncertainty.
