Why did you decide to pursue a career in OBGYN?
Being an OBGYN allows me to interact with people at milestone events. It is a privilege to see a person safely through their pregnancy, delivery and postpartum. It is an honor to be entrusted with performing necessary surgery. It is satisfying to identify an issue and provide treatment, relief or closure. Every day I use empathic listening and curiosity to help sift through hopes, fears, questions. I am blessed to be able to see patients in almost every decade of their life and forge relationships that last years.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by personal connection. I am a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend and physician. I am inspired by health and well-being, from the food that we eat, the way we move our bodies and health of our minds and hearts.
While I enjoy all aspects of providing obstetric and gynecologic care, I have a special interest in vulvar health (lichen sclerosus, lichen simplex chronicus, lichen planus, hidradentitis suppurativa, vulvodynia).
