I am a native to Dallas, Texas. Graduated from R.L Turner High School, attended college at Texas Womans University and completed Medical School at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. Finalized OB/GYN residency at Wayne State/ Hutzel Hospital in Detroit, MI. During medical school I gained an appreciation for research and was a recipient of the Stejenovich Scholarship Award 2000 - 2002. During residency I was nominated chief resident by my peers and attendings in her last year of residency. Upon graduation I was awarded Sidney F. Bottoms M.D. Award for Excellence in Research and Angela Y. Dourron M.D. Maimonides Award for compassionate patient care. I have been practicing Obstetrics and Gynecology for over 15 years. After having 4 children I stopped practicing Obstetrics. As I focused on the care of women outside of the child bearing years, I realized there were many dead ends. Women would came in complaining of fatigue, weight gain, depression, hot flashes, premenopausal symptoms, lack of libido to name a few. The usual traditional treatments didn’t always help my patients. Out of frustration I started investigating and discovered Functional Medicine. It gave me the answers I needed to fill in these gaps where traditional medicine did not. It allows me an in depth view of my patients issues thus finding the root cause in the attempt to prevent a condition in the hopes of providing a better quality of life for my patients as they age. My interest are preventative medicine, anti aging, as well as gynecologic minimally invasive surgery, both laparoscopically and with Davinci robot. I am always looking for updated information on menopausal care, hormone management, weight loss, exercise, colposcopy, and annual maintenance exams.
