Q: What woman inspires you and why?
A: My biggest inspiration in my life has been my mother. Though she worked at a top architectural firm in Nigeria, she was able to relate closely to every single person up and down the organizational ladder. She was extremely compassionate and brought out the best in every single person she met. She was always a caring leader. I strive to be the same with everyone I meet and work with, too.
Q: How have you mentored or inspired others who are following in your footsteps?
A: I love learning and love to share that passion. I like to mentor young minority women from middle school to graduate school who are going into STEM fields. I feel especially proud when they climb their career ladders. One of my mentees is now a Harvard professor.
I’m a people person. My patients come from all over the world, and they are some of the most fantastic people you could ever meet. Every single day is an adventure. I’m also extremely blessed to have wonderful staff members. We work as a family, and we enfold our patients into our family.
I strive to bring awareness to the field of fertility and lecture at medical conferences and participate in research affecting women’s health. Besides my practice, I am an Associate Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at George Washington University School of Medicine and an attending physician at Holy Cross Hospital in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
