Fall 2021-Spring 2023

I have worked as an Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, specializing in obstetric anesthesiology, for the past five years. Prior to my time at Vanderbilt, I completed medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas followed by anesthesiology residency and obstetric anesthesiology fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to clinical work and trainee education, I have spent my early years as faculty cultivating research interests in maternal morbidity, opioid use during pregnancy, postpartum hemorrhage, and clinical informatics.

I am interested in pursuing additional education and training in informatics in order to expand my clinical and research expertise. Specifically, I hope to gain the knowledge to allow me to meaningfully contribute informatics skills to research projects within my department. I am also interested in enhancing the operational workflows of my obstetric anesthesia workplace and translating this new skillset into quality improvement initiatives to benefit all mothers on the labor and delivery floor.

In addition to my work and career aspirations, I am also a wife and mother of two girls (a 2-year-old and 3-week-old). I enjoy spinning and almost any outdoor activity.
