“I have a career long commitment to the sustained growth of women’s health. Not only as a board-certified physician and surgeon, but also as a wife and mother to two children, one of which is my daughter, Lillian. My vision for reproductive medicine surpasses the examination room and reaches globally to ensure that women everywhere, especially in rural and under-served communities, receive the care they need when they have limited access to medical facilities. Over my 15 years of medical research, I observed a pattern within the structure of how we care for patients. The system created to heal women was often serving itself, more than the human lives we have been entrusted with. That is why I am dedicated to evolving the way we provide for our patients and the lives that have been entrusted to our hands. The first time I delivered a child, I realized the gift wrapped within the duty of my job. To be the guide for a baby entering the world. I felt the gravity of my assignment to be an advocate for the voices of those mothers and children. I understand first-hand the importance of being a voice for my fellow physicians to be supported at the state and national level with the tools we need to do our jobs. It is my passion and purpose to evolve our current systems with the innovative technology of the future, to improve healthcare delivery and challenge the way we think about women’s health.”
