My Passion for Healthcare

I always wanted my life’s work to mean something to somebody. In medical school, I realized I loved surgery. But when it came to choosing between being a surgeon and being an OB/Gyn, I felt like my jovial personality was better suited to fit the practice of obstetrics and gynecology. Teachers are some really incredible human beings who’ve put everything they have aside to do what they think needs to be done. My mom didn’t need to work but she did work as a teacher because she loved what she did and she was a great teacher. Maybe part of that is part of why I’m doing what I do.

My Clinical Focus

My passion is taking care of complex medical cases and critically ill neonatal patients. I feel like I’m at my best when I’m taking care of critically ill moms and babies. It calls on experience, education, bedside manner and tests my mettle as a physician. When I serve people from indigent populations, they don't have the resources that insured patients have. So they often have many other conditions that don’t get taken care of, that we end up caring for. That’s where I thrive. Academic medicine, complex cases and indigent care are intricately tied together.
