Patient Care Bio

Pebble discovered medicine mid-life. After a successful and enjoyable 10-year career in theater performance and arts administration in the Baltimore and Washington area, she ran off and joined the medical circus. She completed post-baccalaureate studies at Goucher College in 2003 and returned to her undergraduate alma mater, Brown University, for medical school. During medical school, she was thrilled to discover family medicine as she is most interested in caring for whole people, families, and communities especially in regard to mental and behavioral health issues. University of Rochester's family medicine department was a perfect fit for residency with its excellent psychosocial/behavioral health curriculum and collaborative practice environment.

After serving as chief resident, she was thrilled to join the faculty in 2011 with a focus on teaching in the psychosocial medicine curriculum. She also is interested in procedures in women's health including colposcopy. When not at work, she enjoys being a "fiction-a-holic", knitting, and exploring family life with her Rochester-native sweetheart and his three great kids.
