I was drawn to medicine from a background in engineering, as medicine allowed me to put my problem-solving ability to use in an exciting and useful way. I truly enjoy developing relationships with women that allow me to take part in beautiful moments throughout their lives. I believe good care starts with great communication, compassion, and mutual respect, creating a safe place for my patients without any judgment that allows us to work together as a team to make personalized healthcare decisions.
