Practice resilience- sometimes successful women are just the last ones standing.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

High Risk Pregnancy Specialist and Researcher

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I grew up in a scientific family so I always knew I was going to do medical research. I chose women’s health because we need more data to make evidence based decisions

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

I’m still not sure it’s ideal- but I’m grateful that I was able to find a partner to share parenting with and have a good work-life balance. It’s been tough because my husband is also in academic medicine/research.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I love problem solving and figuring out the best way to get answers to questions that will help improve women and infant health

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

Practice resilience- sometimes successful women are just the last ones standing.
