If you ask my friends and family, I wanted to become an Obstetrician/Gynecologist as early as sixth grade. I thought it sounded like such a fun job delivering babies and taking care of women. As I learned more about the field, and realized that it combined primary care and surgery and allowed me to follow my patients through all stages of their reproductive lives, I was hooked. I grew up with pro-choice values and worked in an abortion clinic as a medical assistant during college. It was at that time that I realized my path included being an abortion provider. I have been involved in women’s reproductive health advocacy since that time. I believe that reproductive healthcare is imperative for the overall health of the community.
I moved to Phoenix to be a part of the Desert Star Family Planning team after graduating from my OB/GYN residency at Kaiser in Los Angeles. I was fortunate enough to train at an institution where all patients receive equitable, cost-effective, evidence-based, quality healthcare and I am excited to start my career at a place that values the same goals. I am proud to be living in Arizona where I feel I can have a huge impact on women’s reproductive health care and, in turn, the health of Arizona families as a whole. Thank you for letting me part of your care! It is a privilege.
