Why did you Become a Fertility Expert?
I was interested in medicine and the field of fertility early on. I was drawn to science and biology, specifically reproductive endocrinology, as soon as it was introduced to me. As a medical student, I quickly found profound joy in helping people build their families.
What is Your Approach to Patient Care?
My patient care philosophy is caring for everyone as their unique self. I share my core values of kindness and respect with every patient I meet and every family I encounter. During a patient’s fertility journey, I support, listen, and offer space or extra connection when needed. I will listen, educate, guide, and help you reach your goals.
What is Your Favorite Part of Working as a Fertility Specialist?
The most joyful part of my job is simply the families! I am truly grateful when I can see someone transition to parenthood, when meeting a new little one, and seeing a family grow.
How Do You Spend Your Free Time?
Outside of medicine, family and friends reside at the core of my life. I love to travel and explore the world. I enjoy developing my active yoga practice, skiing, working out, cooking, reading, and watching a sunset or the sunrise (with that perfect espresso)!
