About Modern Mom MD

I’m a Midwest-raised, first generation American girl, who has learned (most days) how to balance being a surgeon, running a busy home, raising two strong toddler girls, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with my equally busy and invested physician husband by my side.

I spend most of my days saving vision and navigating the #girlmom world.

Join me along my journey to making the most of the here & now, while creating space for a healthy future. I am a speaker, author, mentor, social media advocate, amateur baker, lover of 5:30 am workouts, and to-do list enthusiast.

I’m here to encourage, inspire, and empower you to lead healthy and fulfilling lives inside or outside of medicine.

I’m obsessed with (and not in any particular order) chocolate, eye health, organization, mascara, women in healthcare, and healthy living.
