"Medicine, as a profession, has always been a privilege. I am humbled at every opportunity that I get to connect with a patient and her family. As a Maternal-Fetal Medicine subspecialist (MFM), I work to keep the woman and baby as healthy as possible during pregnancy. MFMs treat some of the most complex maternal and fetal conditions. We also care for women who face unexpected problems that develop during pregnancy-providing hope and encouragement. Being an MFM fulfills my passion for helping each patient I meet to reach her true potential and live her best life."
