Q: Why did you become a doctor/reproductive endocrinologist?
I have wanted to become a doctor for as long as I remember. My experiences volunteering at a hospital as a teenager solidified my dream to care for people for the rest of my life. In medical school, my interest in women’s health flourished. Medically, I was particularly interested in hormonal regulation and endocrinology. During residency, I was very moved by the close relationships I was able to develop with patients in the field of fertility. It is so exciting to practice medicine in a field that has gone through incredible scientific advancement over the past few decades. Helping couples achieve their dreams of parenthood is such a sincere passion of mine. I am also passionate about offering reproductive options for fertility preservation. I am grateful that all of these reasons led me to become a reproductive endocrinologist.
