Dr. Frey was born in the Chicago suburb of Naperville and moved to Longmont, Colorado at the beginning of the ninth grade. She has been lucky enough to stay in the state ever since. She graduated from University of Colorado Medical School in 1985, completed residency in OB/GYN in 1989, and began practice in Littleton that year. She became increasingly interested in an integrative practice style, took a year off practice in 2000 to study this field, and has had an integrative practice since then.

At HealthMark, Dr. Frey has chosen to focus only on office gynecologic care and minor procedures.  She has developed a special interest in menopausal medicine and has over two decades of experience in prescribing compounded bioidentical hormones. She also spends a great deal of time exploring non-hormonal approaches to the management of menopausal symptoms, always tailoring the discussion to the wishes of each individual patient. Another type of hormone prescribing which Dr. Frey offers is the provision of masculinizing or feminizing therapy for transgender patients. She also has a professional interest and experience in the management of sexual dysfunction.

Dr. Frey holds clinical faculty appointments with the University of Colorado Medical School and the Swedish Hospital Family Medicine residency.  Dr. Frey enjoys teaching medical students and residents and often has one working with her in the clinic.

Dr. Frey is married with five boys, many of whom have left home to start their own adventures. She and her husband are avid cyclists, and she also enjoys skiing, gardening, reading novels, and playing violin.
