"Unwavering commitment to patients..."

"I was at a point in my life at which I wanted to build on my nursing experience. After considering a Ph.D. in nursing, however, I decided medicine offered more options. So, with the unwavering support of my father, and husband, Sam, who was a physician, I went to medical school to become a cardiologist. But obstetrics and gynecology became my passion because I could do surgery and take care of women!"
