Dr. Carter believes medicine is a combination of science, art and compassion. Her goal in medicine is to improve the health of her patients by helping to guide women through their health care decisions during the many stages of their lives, whether they are adolescent, pregnant or menopausal. She takes pride in positively impacting the health of her patients, their new and growing families and our community. Dr. Carter is lucky to balance a job she loves with a busy, active family. She enjoys spending time with her husband and two boys whether it is participating in their school lives or trying to keep up with them on the mountain or the trail. Guilty pleasures include reading, going for a run with her dog, Trixie, and afternoon naps.
