The biggest satisfaction I have professionally is establishing a strong physician to patient core relationship that lasts throughout the treatment cycle and beyond. I think it's important to stay committed until the end goal of pregnancy is achieved. It makes the “highs and lows” for the patient easier to handle knowing that I’m by their side throughout the journey.
I spend nearly every waking hour either as a physician helping patients become parents or as a mother myself to my own children and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being a mother myself is the ultimate motivator to help every single patient achieve parenthood. Besides that, I play tennis and I am (learning) golf and I love to travel with my husband and family.
Dedicated, honest and funny.
