Q & A
Q: Why did you choose to work in reproductive medicine?
A: I always felt passionate about working with women who had concerns regarding fertility. While going through infertility workup and treatment years ago, I became even more interested in reproductive medicine. It was an eye opening experience being on the opposite side of the exam table. After working in the OB/GYN aspect of women’s health, reproductive medicine provided me with a professional challenge as well as a chance to help patient’s navigate thru their family building journey.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I like to exercise especially run and bike, cook, read, garden and most of all spend time with my husband and our son.
Q: What is something about you that would surprise most people?
A: One from the past – our family used to make our own wine by stomping on the grapes in a big vat in our garage. One from more recent time – I have completed multiple half Ironman races.
