My Journey in Medicine
Gynecologic health is a core aspect of a woman’s well-being that spans my entire lifetime. Specifically, caring for the gynecologic concerns of infants, children, adolescents, and young women aged 0-21 years is my passion. My mission is to provide a personalized approach to this population in a non-judgmental, conducive environment built on trust, which led me to open a gynecologic practice that is solely dedicated to this special and gynecologically underserved patient population.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that girls should have their first gynecologic visit between the ages of 13 and 15. These visits provide an opportunity for anticipatory guidance regarding reproductive healthcare.
Being fellowship trained in pediatric gynecology afforded me the privilege to learn about conditions isolated to this population and master skills needed to handle sensitive topics that adolescents navigate. I enjoy educating my patients on their anatomy, pubertal changes, normal and abnormal menses, healthy relationships, and how to care for their bodies, among other things. My practice deals with a wide range of conditions in this demographic, from congenital anomalies, early puberty concerns, menstrual disorders, PCOS, and ovarian cysts to contraceptive needs. When caring for my patients, I take a multidisciplinary and holistic approach that allows me to put both their emotional and physical well-being at the forefront.
I’m so excited to join Flo’s Medical Board to help educate the app’s youngest users and their parents/caregivers about their bodies and support Flo’s mission to build a better future for female health.
I love spending time with my husband and three wonderful children, watching Marvel movies, and walking outside to appreciate the beautiful Texan weather.
