My Journey in Medicine

I decided to become a doctor at a very young age, and felt drawn towards obstetrics and gynecology early on in medical school. I love everything about taking care of women and all people with ovaries. The strength and perseverance of my female patients is so inspiring. I also enjoy the diversity of being an OB-GYN — I get to do adolescent health, pregnancy, perimenopause, menopause, surgery, primary care, emergent care, and even some psychological health. It is an honor to take care of people through all stages of life.

With my clinical practice, I’ve created a safe and inclusive environment to empower women to learn about and love their bodies. It’s no secret to me that a gynecologist’s office can be super intimidating, so I aim to make my patients feel as comfortable as possible. I believe that by providing the power of knowledge, together we can improve health, confidence, and happiness. I truly care for each and every one of my patients and take the time to listen personally so I can provide health care that is as unique as they are!

I’m passionate about educating women not only in the exam room, but also online. In addition to my blog, I love sharing health information and breaking down taboos on Instagram and TikTok as @dr.staci.t. I’ve also been featured on multiple podcasts and news articles, and I’ve spoken at events about women’s health.

It’s a joy to be able to collaborate with Flo and reach even more women through the wonderful platform with empowering information about their well-being.
