  • “The ability to care for a woman throughout her life is what inspired me to become an obstetrician/gynecologist. ”

I always knew I wanted to combine my love of working with people with my intellectual interest in science, so becoming a doctor seemed like a natural fit for me.

In medical school, I worked in a free clinic specifically dedicated to women's health. I loved the idea of working in a field where you could care for a woman all the way from her early teen years through the later years of her life. The ability to care for a woman throughout her life is what inspired me to become an obstetrician/gynecologist.

I truly strive to provide comprehensive care to women, whether that means providing contraceptive counseling and preventative care, sharing in the life-changing experience of pregnancy and childbirth, or offering innovative surgical approaches that can really transform a patient's quality of life. I feel so privileged to share in some of the most intimate moments in my patients' lives, and I want them to know that, as their doctor, I will always advocate for them in all of their reproductive health needs.
