What is your favorite procedure to perform and why?

Obstetrical Ultrasound. There is something completely wonderful about being with my patient and her family when they see their baby for the first time. It is a wonderful gift that I get to participate in on a daily basis.

What specifically attracted you to obstetrics?

I enjoy caring for women. I am the youngest of six girls and I truly believe that women are strong, enduring, and hopeful. I enjoy assisting women in all aspects of their health and taking care of them through the years is the most rewarding experience I can imagine.

Describe the most rewarding experience that you have had working with a patient.

One of the most rewarding experiences I have had is a patient who had lost a previous baby because of an underlying health problem. We were able to diagnose and treat the problem and her next pregnancy resulted in a beautiful baby without problems. When we delivered that baby, their was not a dry eye in the delivery room (including mine) and I do not think I could ever forget the look on my patient’s face when she held her baby--pure joy and happiness!
