I received my Doctor of Medicine degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1976. I completed an Obstetrics and Gynecology residency in 1980 at the University of Florida, and my Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship at UT Health San Antonio.
I am an Associate Professor at UT Health San Antonio. I have been awarded the Outstanding Teaching Award, presented by Obstetrics and Gynecology Senior Residents. I have been an active researcher for many years and am published in many peer-reviewed journals.
I am a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine. I am certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
