Career Influence

“One of my aunts was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very young age. She had a multi-specialty team of physicians caring for her and encouraging her to fight. I was inspired by their compassion and determination to help her. I always knew I wanted to be a doctor, but my aunt’s story inspired me to become an OB/GYN so I could be an advocate for women and their health through all stages of their life.”
