About Me

I am a native of the Chicago area, a graduate of Glenbrook South High School and Northwestern University. My medical degree is from Georgetown University in my husband's home town of Washington, D.C. I did my residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin, affiliated with Marquette University, at the former Milwaukee County Hospital (now known as Froedtert Memorial). My husband and I moved back to Chicago's North Shore after my training. My husband and I have one daughter, born in 1987. When she was in middle school I realized I could not be both the kind of mother I wanted to be and the kind of doctor I wanted to be and still continue to practice obstetrics, so I stopped delivering babies in 2001 after over 20 years.

I am an avid gardener especially of roses and shade perennials. I am active in Trinity United Methodist Church of Wilmette, Illinois. I have been on medical mission trips to Costa Rica, South Africa, Mozambique, Panama, and I have led medical mission trips to Senegal, West Africa. I am interested in poverty, hunger and women's rights. I volunteer at LINKS, in Northfield, Illinois, and I am on the Domestic Violence Committee and the Women's Issues Committee at Evanston Hospital in Evanston, Illinois.
