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.

I am a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility physician practicing at Aspire Fertility in Austin, Texas. My goals with this space are to empower women with education, to promote fertility awareness, and to encourage women to pursue their dreams.
