What drew you to RMI?
I was born and raised in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. My Dad grew up in the same town and I have a lot of family in Chicago and the Western suburbs. I had the amazing opportunity to train in other areas of the country, but I always wanted to return home to start my career. I interviewed with many groups in the Chicagoland area and RMI stood out as the obvious choice for me. The mission of RMI to provide the best reproductive care personalized for each individual patient and their unique needs resonates with my goals as a reproductive endocrinologist.
Who inspires you?
My family and my patients. I believe that there is no pursuit more gratifying than helping patients to plan for and build their families. The dedication of my patients inspires me every day. It is a true privilege to be a part of the reproductive journey of my patients both during challenging times and in celebration of successes.
What do you consider your special areas of interest in reproductive medicine and why?
I welcome all patients at Reproductive Medicine Institute. I aim to treat the full spectrum of reproductive endocrinology and infertility patients throughout one’s lifetime. Among the field I have particular interest in LGBTQ+ family building, third party reproduction, diminished ovarian reserve, elective oocyte cryopreservation and individuals with previously unsuccessful fertility treatments. My specific research interests include the impact of gender-affirming hormones on reproductive potential, disparities in access to fertility care and diminished ovarian reserve.
