I strive to be, foremost, an advocate for women. My goal is to be a trusted advisor to my patients and to educate and empower them in such a way that they view their health as a comprehensive positive relationship with their bodies rather than the absence of disease. I seek to support the specific health goals of all women and to provide patients with the freedom of options to facilitate joint decision making in determining what is best for their personal needs and preferences.
Dr. Kiernan hails from the East Coast, having completed her undergraduate degree at Yale University and medical training at New York Medical College and The Mount Sinai Hospital. She also holds a Masters in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Much like the name and spirit of this practice, Dr. Kiernan is interested in cross-disciplinary and complete women’s health care, as she seeks to support her patients throughout every stage of life.
Her professional interests include minimally invasive surgical techniques, adolescent health, as well as contraceptive and family planning counseling. On the personal front, Dr. Kiernan is an avid open water swimmer, yogi, and Ironman Finisher. Marilee resides in Hermosa Beach with her husband and son and in her free time can be found enjoying the plethora of outdoor activities Southern California has to offer!
