Work Experience: 15+ years in obstetrics and gynecology, reproductive endocrinology, and infertility

“I strive to care for patients with the compassion and expertise that I would appreciate from my own physician. After beginning my fertility training, I was diagnosed with infertility after my first child (secondary infertility). Going through the full range of infertility therapies and pregnancy loss has deeply impacted the way I care for patients. I can appreciate the physical and emotional stress that often accompanies infertility in a unique way.”

My Journey in Medicine

My personal experience with both secondary infertility and pregnancy loss has given me a unique insight into reproductive medicine, and I am well known for my compassionate and individualized patient care. 

I have published many original research articles in top medical journals on topics such as endometriosis, tubal factor infertility, in vitro fertilization (IVF), and donor sperm.

I am a verified creator on Instagram and TikTok focused on providing accurate health information to my followers. I strive to empower people with education about their bodies to help them make impactful health decisions. Being a parent is the most important thing in my life, and helping others become pregnant is the best job in the world.

My special interests include in vitro fertilization, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, unexplained infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, premature ovarian insufficiency, LGTBQ+ fertility, reciprocal IVF, and transgender fertility. I am thrilled to be part of the Flo team of experts.
