I grew up in the small town of Hopkinton, NH. After receiving a degree in Molecular Biology from Kenyon College I spent a year living in Costa Rica, teaching preschool and volunteering in a public hospital, while becoming fluent in Spanish. Having fallen in love with caring for patients, I returned to the US to apply to medical school. After receiving my medical degree from Stanford University I returned to New England for residency training in family medicine at Brown University in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. During this time I was fortunate to be able to work in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, and gain perspective on how health care is delivered in other countries. I stayed on at Brown for a one year Fellowship in Maternal Child Health, pursuing additional training in prenatal and obstetric care, care of the newborn, and family planning.
For the past three years I have been working at Compass Medical in Easton, and prior to that spent five years practicing full spectrum family medicine with obstetrics at a group practice in Attleboro, MA.
I pride myself on helping my patients feel more self-efficacy regarding their health and giving them concrete tools and realistic goals. I also enjoy teaching third year medical students at Brown Medical School as part of their core family medicine clerkship.
In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my husband, Eric, and young kids, Naomi and Gabe, having dinner with friends, reading a great book and serving as co-troop leader for Naomi’s Girl Scout Daisy troop.
When first learning about the Direct Primary Care model, I was thrilled to finally find a system which values taking the time to give each patient the care and attention he or she needs. In co-founding Infinity Family Care I am excited and grateful to be able to care for patients the way I envisioned when I decided to become a family doctor.
