Dr. Koenigsman highly values life-long learning. She had a successful career as a software engineer for over a decade. However, her desire to help people led Helen to reconsider her professional goals and pursue a career in medicine. “I believe that curiosity, the humility to always be a student in life, and the ability to embrace change are key elements to providing quality patient care.”
Since childhood, Helen has been involved in community service. She and her husband participate in the school activities of their sons and, as a family, they work together in giving back to their community. Dr. Koenigsman especially enjoys singing and playing the piano. Her family enjoys fishing, reading, skiing, exploring, and making new memories together.
