Their practices offer the complete spectrum of maternal-fetal medicine services to ensure their patients receive the highest quality care possible.

Back in the early days of her academic career, she received her medical degree from the Medical University of the Americas in Nevis, West Indies. She completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Wayne State University & Hutzel Women’s Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and finished her fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine. 

The doctor joined Obstetrix Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists in 2020 after spending several successful years in academic practice in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHealth).

An authority in her field, she is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). The mission of the ABOG is to define specialty standards, certify obstetricians and gynecologists, and facilitate continuous learning to advance 

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN) is the medical specialty that encompasses the two subspecialties of obstetrics (covering pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period) and gynecology (covering the health of the female reproductive system – vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts).

Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology that focuses on managing health concerns of the mother and fetus prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy. Maternal-fetal medicine specialists are physicians who subspecialize within the field of obstetrics. For pregnant women with chronic health problems or other complications during their pregnancy, MFM specialists work to keep them as healthy as possible while their bodies carry a pregnancy. They also care for women who face unexpected problems that develop during pregnancy such as early labor, bleeding or high blood pressure.
