Personal Statement

The unique field of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, merges science, surgery, women’s and men’s health and the ever-changing technology to help create families. I love listening, sharing, counseling, guiding and developing a partnership with my patients during their fertility journey. Each and every journey is unique and special in its own ways and I am grateful to be involved with this journey and to be a part of my patients’ care during one of the most intimate and challenging times of their lives. I love that I get to laugh, cry and celebrate with my patients and to ride this emotional rollercoaster with them.

My passion is to advocate for women, to promote women’s and men’s reproductive health and fertility. And to educate and empower individuals with knowledge about their reproductive potentials and options. My commitment is to advance the science of reproductive medicine, through research and clinical care. My goals are to help support couples and individuals with their fertility and family building journey through whichever path they choose to do so: whether through egg and embryo freezing for the future, fertility preservation after cancer diagnosis prior to undergoing cancer therapy, using donor egg or donor sperm, or gestational surrogacy.

Research Interests:
