OB / GYN Doctor
I am an Obstetrician/Gynecologist and have been practicing for 8 years. I received my bachelor's degree and did my residency training at University of Miami. I received my Medical Degree from the University of South Florida. Although my father, a retired Family Physician, tried to deter me from becoming an OB/GYN because of the work hours, I still followed my heart and love what I do. I currently serve as the Vice Chief of the OB/GYN department at Memorial Hospital West and was voted Physician of the Month in February of 2019. I have balanced my work life with being a wife, a mother, and am very close with my family. In my free time I love to dance and relax at home. I help my parents with collections for donations to their home country Haiti and aim to be more involved in mission trips.
