My Journey in Medicine

For as long as I can remember, I have gravitated toward women’s health. As an OB-GYN, I love caring for women in all stages of life. Whether entering adulthood or transitioning into menopause, wellness is always a key part of our health. My goal is to inspire women to take autonomy of their health and wellness, focus on daily self-care practices, and educate on common women’s health topics.

I see patients with a variety of conditions, including fibroids, irregular vaginal bleeding, abnormal Pap smears, infertility, and menopause. As a health care expert, I strive to educate women about their bodies and encourage them to address their physical and emotional health to improve overall wellness.

Outside of the hospital, I cohost a podcast with my sister called “Cradle & All.” We record biweekly episodes on all things motherhood and womanhood. Balancing relationships, work, and wellness while raising little ones can be a real challenge, so we share all of our tips from our personal experiences to help our listeners feel more understood and supported in their daily life. I also publish and collaborate on health-related content and articles for a variety of platforms.

It’s really exciting for me to join Flo’s medical advisory board so I can utilize my knowledge about women’s health to educate and inspire users all over the world to take good care of their overall well-being.

Fun Facts

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, and anything that sparkles. I spend most of my time running after my 4-year-old and 1-year-old sons, spending time with my husband, and catching up with girlfriends when I get a chance.
