About Me

I provide gynecologic and specialist care for pelvic floor conditions. Common conditions I treat include: urinary leakage, pelvic organ prolapse, heavy menstrual bleeding, postpartum pelvic floor issues, pelvic fistulas, and fibroids. I provide both conservative treatment plans (physical therapy and medications) and a variety of surgical approaches (vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery). My clinical expertise is in congenital genitourinary disorders, meaning anatomic abnormalities of the bladder, vagina, and uterus present at birth. These may include a double uterus, absent vagina, or abnormal separations of the vagina. My goal is to foster a warm and inclusive environment to allow women to share concerns about sensitive topics. I aim to help women understand the details of their condition and the possible options for treatment such that they feel empowered to make an informed decision. I encourage patients to share preferred pronouns, past traumas, different abilities, and need for accommodations. It is important for me to respect these. Outside of medicine, I enjoy the outdoors with my family and stay active cycling, running, and doing yoga. My husband and I are foodies and enjoy the Triangle food scene.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

I conduct basic and translational research in regenerative medicine. My research is targeted at several areas of unmet patient need, such as conditions where traditional medicine or surgery are ineffective. My primary interests are in using regenerative medicine therapies to regenerate or assist in healing of the bladder and pelvic floor tissues, as well as using 3D printing for gynecologic care. I collaborate closely with biomedical engineers, urologists, colorectal surgeons, and pediatric and adolescent gynecologists to investigate how we can safely and effectively offer these innovative therapies to patients.
