  • “My goal is to be a down-to-earth person my patients can relate to.”
I’ve always had an interest in medicine, and when I was in medical school, I realized I wanted to specialize in women’s care. I wanted to be there for women, both to treat their conditions and support them.

I think the best part of my job is getting to know my patients deeply. In obstetrics, I see each patient at her first visit, at her first ultrasound, and over the course of her pregnancy. Delivering a life that you first got to know as an image on an ultrasound is a really amazing experience and a privilege.

Part of my job is providing emotional support and making patients feel reassured. My goal is to be a down-to-earth person my patients can relate to. I don’t want to be someone in a white coat who dictates your health care. I want my patients to know they can come to me not only because I’m knowledgeable about treating them but also because I can help alleviate their fears and comfort them.
