I earned my B.S. in Biology at the University of Dallas and M.D. from the University of Texas Health Houston. After my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UT Health Houston at Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital, I completed a fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology) at Northwestern University concurrently with my Masters in Clinical Investigation at Northwestern’s School of Public Health. After practicing in Chicago for over a decade, I feel privileged to join the faculty of UT Health San Antonio.
Career Highlights
I specialize in pelvic floor disorders in women and see patients at the MARC, Hill Country and Robert B. Green campuses. In addition to my clinical practice, I am involved in research, with over 40 peer-reviewed publications in the field of urogynecology and medical education.
I have held several national and international leadership roles. I currently serve as treasurer on the Executive Board of the International Urogynecology Association and am an oral board examiner for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I completed the prestigious Association of Professors in Gynecology and Obstetrics Scholars and Leaders program as well as the Medical Education, Research, Innovation and Teaching Fellowship at the University of Chicago.
Interests
In addition to my clinical work, I have a particular interest in medical education. I started the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship program, a joint program between the Departments of Urology and Obstetrics and Gynecology. I am the director of the program.
My educational leadership efforts span the medical education continuum. I am a co-director for the Lozano Long School of Medicine pre-clinical course, Medicine, Behavior and Society and have a faculty appointment in the Department of Medical Education focused on faculty development. I am the executive director of the Academy of Educational Scholars for the Lozano Long School of Medicine.
I have a particular interest in teaching professionalism across the educational continuum. My current research interest is finding meaningful interventions to address challenging learning environments.
