I enjoy showing people the beauty that I see through my lens. I am honored to capture these moments that are so fleeting that they can only be collected in photographs. I love telling the unique story of each person at all stages of life, from the very beginning.
My career path has been an odyssey of sorts. I have a Ph.D. in molecular biology and my research over the years focused on cancer biology. During that time, photography was not just a strong hobby of mine, but part of my job. I took thousands of photos – from cancer cells to whole tumors – and these images were a key component in documenting my discoveries. After almost 14 years in academia, I decided to follow my heart and pursue photography as a career.
My family means everything to me. These are the people I share my life with and to whom, I give everything. I am married to my best friend, my soulmate and my biggest fan. I am a mom to three adorable little girls who have taught me more about myself, and life in general, than anyone else.
