Navigating motherhood and medicine

 

I am lucky to have a career I love and an amazing family. I know first hand that being a woman in medicine is not always an easy task and balancing work and family as a working mom is not always (or ever) simple. However, I am a huge believer that balance is never achieved without putting your time and energy into things that you love, that inspire you, and that bring you joy. My goals with this space are to empower women with education, to promote fertility awareness, and to encourage women to pursue their dreams.

Interested in becoming a patient?

I see patients at Aspire Fertility Austin where we offer patient consultations and all treatment options including ovulation induction, controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), frozen embryo transfers (FET), and preimplantation genetic testing (PGT).

I am passionate about womens health and an advocate for fertility awareness. I believe that empowering women to understand their bodies and all their reproductive options through education is an important component of my job. In all new patient consultations, a considerable portion of time is spent on education about fertility and infertility.
