My Journey to Urology
Women’s health interested me from a very young age, driving me into many years of service as a volunteer and researcher in various women’s health programs and organizations. So when I went to college, my mind was already made up. I just wanted to pursue female urology and pelvic floor medicine. Being a native of the Midwest and Cleveland, Ohio, I went to Radford University in Radford for my bachelor of science in biology and chemistry. Upon graduation, I joined the College of Osteopathic Medicine, East Lansing, MI, for my medical school degree. Then I went to St. John’s Providence Health System, Detroit, for my urology residency program. I specialized in voiding dysfunction, pelvic floor disorders, sexual dysfunction, urologic reconstruction and pelvic organ prolapse, though I also handle general urology disorders such as kidney stones and bladder cancer.
Urology is a field that challenges the intellect daily. It also inculcates the capacity to develop relationships based on trust. But most importantly, it offers the opportunity to solve women’s health problems, something I have been committed to since I was a young girl. As a urologist, I am able to engage with women in different situations and suffering from various conditions. It is a great privilege to listen to them, help them relax and find hope even in the face of a devastating diagnosis. I love my job because each day offers the chance to relieve discomfort, solve embarrassing conditions and improve the quality of life.
