What led you to the field of obstetrics/gynecology?
I’ve been interested in obstetrics and pediatrics for as long as I can remember: I’ve always been fascinated by how a few cells divide, then grow to become a baby. My mother says that I told her that I wanted to be a doctor who delivers babies at the tender age of three. Though I decided that a career in nursing was a better fit, I remained committed to Ob/Gyn.
How many years have you been practicing in the field?
I worked as a Maternal/Child Nurse for over 16 years, and as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner for 1 year before joining WHP.
What makes your job rewarding? What do you enjoy about your work?
Helping a patient bring new life into this world, and seeing a healthy baby at the end of pregnancy fills my soul. I am also very passionate about empowering women through education about their health.
What brought you to the area and to this practice?
I worked as a nurse practitioner in a private practice in Brooklyn after earning my degree. With my family on Long Island, I was happy to be offered a position at The Woman’s Health Pavilion.
Do you have special interests or areas of specialty as an WHNP?
My special interests as a woman’s health nurse practitioner are adolescent care, postpartum care, and contraceptive care.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
During my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and children. I love going out to eat, music and dancing. I also enjoy traveling all over the world and I look forward to adding more stamps to my passport.
