I love traveling and my childhood allowed me this exposure. I have lived in five different countries, but I have traveled to more than 30. I met my husband in Atlanta, and once we had a child we decided to move back to the city. I have always had a passion to work in medicine since I was a little girl, but I did not know that I wanted to be a surgeon until I rotated with an orthopedic surgeon. I thought cardiology was in my future, but I quickly changed my decision to enter the surgical field. The preciseness and the team approach necessary to take care of patients made me chose vascular surgery as my specialty.
I enjoy taking care of the entire spectrum of vascular disease. I perform endovascular and open surgeries. My favorite surgery is a carotid endarterectomy, which allows me to clean out the artery to decrease stroke risk. I also do aortic aneurysm repairs, bypasses and dialysis access cases. I take care of peripheral venous insufficiency by performing ablation procedures in our procedure suites.
I enjoy traveling and learning about new cultures. I love to run and take part in local races. One day, I hope to take part in a triathlon. Besides traveling, I enjoy spending time with my daughter and husband. My daughter keeps me on my toes with her interests. Luckily her interests are like mine when I was her age, so it is like reliving my childhood. My husband and I also take part in philanthropic endeavors that help young individuals thrive.
