Q: Where did your interest in reproductive endocrinology come from?
As a young girl I was taught many baseless things about contraception and reproduction, so to better educate myself, I pursued the study of developmental biology as an undergraduate where I was introduced to hormone function and embryonic development. During my medical training, reproductive endocrinology became a natural path to follow based on my interest in reproductive health. As I cared for more infertility patients, I became passionate about finding and researching solutions to help patients have a healthy baby. I am thankful my path led me to become a reproductive endocrinologist because I am not sure there is a more rewarding job than helping people build their families.
