Voted a 5280 best doctor by my peers in response to the question, "Which physician would you trust to treat you and your family?"
My research has focused on pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes in teenagers, including improving testing for diabetes and prevention of progression of pre-diabetes to diabetes. My current interest is related to prevention of mental health outcomes of depression and suicide in transgender youth.

My clinical interests include general health of adolescents, including management of weight problems, contraception and menstrual problems. I am also experienced in care of transgender youth.
I believe that teenagers have the power to improve their health and encourage them to strive to set goals for themselves to take good care of their bodies.
In my free time, I enjoy skiing, hiking, singing, cooking, and spending time with my family and pets.
I have participated as a team manager for Destination Imagination for four years. This year, I coordinated setting up DI teams at both of my children's DPS schools.
I also sing in a local group (Last Note Singers) that performs in various community settings, including nursing and retirement homes, the zoo and the botanical gardens.
Public Speaking Yes
I am interested in speaking on topics of adolescent family planning and adolescent obesity and type 2 diabetes
