Why did you choose to become a doctor and specialize in OBGYN? 

'I’ve wanted to become a doctor for as long as I can remember. I’ve always had an affinity for science, I enjoy challenges, and I love building relationships with people, and medicine encompasses all of those. The continuity of care and level of trust that we’re able to build with patients as Ob/Gyns is unique, and I enjoy the balance between inpatient and outpatient care. It’s pretty special to be able to advocate for patients and help them achieve their reproductive goals, and it’s rewarding to educate women so they can make the best treatment decisions for themselves."
