Obstetrician, gynecologist, and assistant professor and director, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Florida, US
“Whether through my research or my role as an educator, obstetrician, and gynecologist, I am constantly striving to improve the quality of care for LGBTQA+ patients. We all deserve to feel well in our bodies, and through my work, I aim to ensure that more gender-diverse people get the gender-affirming health care they need and deserve.”
Areas of expertise
  • Obstetrics and gynecology 
  • Transgender health and hormone therapy
  • Gender-affirming medicine and surgery
“My choice to work in the realm of transgender health was based on a passion I developed while still a medical student. At the time, this field was vastly uncharted territory, but I was fortunate to have mentors who opened my eyes to the much-needed care these patients deserved but often did not receive. From that point forward, I devoted my career to providing care to gender-diverse patients and advancing the field of gender-affirming health.”
