Q: Why did you become a doctor/reproductive endocrinologist?
I loved science in high school and attended Cornell University where I became a health center volunteer in women's health during my freshman year. Finding enjoyment in my premed classes was complimented by a large dose of coursework in public health policy. I found that my interest in surgery, technical procedures, and women's health was a perfect segway into OB/GYN. During residency I was fortunate to have early exposure to reproductive endocrinologists who were excellent surgeons and very thoughtful about the hormonal disorders leading to the patient condition. This medical sleuthing resonated with me and I felt it was a good fit for my interest in problem solving, empathetic patient interactions, and technical procedures.
