As a woman and a patient, I know how I want to be treated by my physicians and I want to exceed that care for every patient I treat.
Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology
“Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did but backwards and in heels.”
This quote sums up why I chose the field of OB/GYN. Women are mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, partners. We work hard, and sometimes…we get to play. We do it because we have to, and we do it because we love it. Dr. Andrew Weil once said, “the heart pumps the freshest blood to itself first, because without that vital organ, the rest of the body can’t function.” We as women deserve outstanding healthcare because if we stop functioning, our entire family suffers!
My special interests include hysteroscopy, including Essure permanent sterilization, infertility, pelvic floor issues and pediatric and adolescent gynecology. I have a special interest in lactation (I am a certified lactation counselor). I also embrace complimentary medicine and highly recommend a unified strategy to take care of my patients. Currently, I am a certified pilates instructor and will start a prenatal pilates class soon.
After growing up in Spring, Texas, I studied at Trinity University in San Antonio, and then enjoyed my “first” career as a child advocate/public affairs/community relations specialist at Texas Children’s Hospital before attending medical school at the University of Texas at Houston.
I joined the US Navy in 1999, and after residency at Houston’s Baylor College of Medicine, I spent four more years as an active duty sailor. It was a privilege to work at the National Naval Medical Center/Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC, dubbed “the President’s Hospital”, where I not only took care of dignitaries, but also young women whose husbands/fathers were off at war and servicewomen of all ages. While in the Navy, I taught at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences as an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and served as a Department of Defense expert on sexual assault.
My husband and I came back to Texas, because we missed fellow Texan friendliness and of course, good Tex-Mex food! We have one toddler daughter, and also have two canine daughters and a feline son. We are big ‘foodies’ and love to cook, often dishes way beyond our ability. We also enjoy tennis/golf/grilling. I must admit a slight addiction to two television shows “So you think you can dance” and “Top Chef”. We are proud to call the Denton area home… where the stars at night ARE big and bright!
