Philosophy
The family always comes first. We are here to guide you through a difficult pregnancy and partner with you to achieve the best possible outcome. Pregnancy is such a special time, and we love being a part of this.
Personal Information
I am the first of my family to become a doctor. The melding of science, art and profound human interaction make this the most rewarding calling and career. Being part of the pregnancy journey of a family is always amazing. My husband and I are raising three spunky children, and love being active with them. We recently added a puppy to the mix, so there is never a boring moment.
In the Community
I am active in the Rivkin foundation and its educational arm CanCan - raising money and awareness for Ovarian and Breast Cancer. To stay involved in my children's activities I serve on the Executive Committee of their Youth Alpine Racing Team (Team Alpental Snoqualmie) in the capacity of Vice President. I am also a USSA certified race official for timing and calculation.

I met Dr. Paek a few times during my most previous baby girl pregnancy and chose her for my doctor with the one I just lost because she was so wonderful. All the doctors at MFM are great and work wonderfully together but she was someone whine I felt listened to me and tried to understand my concerns or just any questions I had for her. Dr. Paek always made me feel comfortable and had great tips and advices. I will definitely return to her if I get pregnant again.
