I am writing to share the difficult news that I am leaving Women's Healthcare Associates (WHA) to join Kaiser Permanente. This was a very difficult decision for me. Thinking about not getting another update on your job, a long-awaited vacation, or a new addition to your family is what made it particularly hard. The privilege of getting to know you and being able to support you through such personal milestones, transitions and, frequently, hardships, has been more rewarding than I can adequately describe. I have frequently reassured patients that “I am not going anywhere,” but, like so many people, the pandemic has brought my work and life priorities into a different focus. Moving to Kaiser will provide me with a better balance between the two without the added anxiety of being a business owner during these unpredictable times.
Thank you for allowing me to participate in such meaningful moments of your life. I will deeply miss the connections I have made and regret not being able to continue supporting you as your life unfolds. Best wishes for health and happiness in everything you do.
