She has worked in community clinics throughout Sonoma County and most recently served as the clinical lead physician at the Sonoma State University Student Health Center.

Margot was drawn to SCIHP's mission driven organization and strong commitment to serving their community. Margot expresses that it is "a privilege to work within a system that is so patient-centered and informed." She is particularly drawn to SCHIP's team-based approach to care and the comprehensive services and support programs available to patients. Margot expresses that by truly listening and being present during a clinical visit is "paramount to building a healthy doctor/patient relationship." She is committed to partnering with her patients toward achieving their health goals and looks forward to caring for her patients and their family. When Margot is not working, she recently developed a love of gardening and is slowly creating a new landscape in her front yard with drought resistant plants.
