I chose to be a doctor when I was 14 and witnessed a young girl lose her life in a small village in Brazil because they didn’t have enough doctors to care for her. It was a very clear moment in which I knew I wanted to have the skills to be able to at least give my best and try to help as many women as possible. I shadowed an OB/Gyn for a few weeks and knew this was the specialty for me. I loved the idea of helping women through each step in their lives, from painful periods to pregnancy, miscarriages, and menopause, along with all the cultural pressures imposed on them. I deeply believe in evidence based medicine and shared-decision making. My goal is to educate my patients, present them with their options and share my expertise. Then together, we can find the best individualized course of care for them.
