"Patients deserve the absolute best care from whomever their anesthesiologist may be, but I feel a special sense of pride when a patient tells me that they feel good about having a female anesthesiologist or that I'm the first female anesthesiologist they've ever had. I love being a part of that progress."

“’Where the art of medicine is loved, there is also love for humanity,’ said Hippocrates. Ultimately, it is my love and commitment to public service, which keeps me going, particularly when faced with the challenges of day-to-day practice. To be able to make a positive impact on the patients I serve in the community gives me a great sense of purpose and fuels my motivation as a practicing radiologist.”

“Being a woman in emergency medicine is empowering and provides a unique opportunity to make an impact on the patients I serve. I am able to make connections with my patients and often think this is due to the perspective I have as a female clinician. Some female patients feel more comfortable with a female clinician, and I am happy to be able to provide the care they need and deserve in a way that respects their preferences."

"My path in medicine has been unique, choosing to dedicate my career to supporting my fellow clinicians and fighting to improve the chronic, pervasive challenges within our healthcare system. While this was an unconventional move questioned by many, I was surrounded by female colleagues who believed in me and propped me up along the way. I am extremely grateful for these women who played such a pivotal role in my life and feel incredibly honored to be able to now pay it forward."

“When the patients come back for their postpartum visit, we always hear, ‘Oh, I had a great experience. The nurses, your team, everyone, the doctor who delivered me, everyone was great.’ And so, it really warms my heart that, you know, again, even with our clinic, we're seeing patients that no one else will see because they're considered too high risk.”
