Why did you choose your profession?:
Throughout my training, I always followed where my passion took me. I ended up choosing Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) because I was fascinated with the basic mechanisms and physiology behind a variety of conditions ranging from the basics of the menstrual cycle to rare endocrinology disorders. But most of all, I loved helping couples who were struggling to conceive reach their dreams of building a family. The genuine bonds that develop with the couples are extraordinary, and for me, it was a huge part of why I chose this field.
Current Passion Project:
I am passionate about fertility education awareness. I have put together a fertility education series called “Fertility Friday.” The goal is to provide straightforward fertility education to the public and answer commonly encountered patient questions.
Who was/is your inspiration?
There are several physicians on social media who have continually inspired me.
