staffpicI attended University of Maryland for my undergraduate degree and received a BS in Biology. I then went on to study medicine at Georgetown University where I received my Doctor of Medicine in 1993. I completed my speciality training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at George Washington University. During my 4 years of Ob/Gyn training I received Resident of the Year 3 out of 4 years. I have received the Washingtonian Top Docs Award in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2012. I have also been named Top Doc by Consumer Checkbook magazine.

Prior to becoming a physician I was a Registered Nurse. I love practicing medicine and feel that it is a privilege to participate with women in their health care needs. I want women to know that they are truly cared for. I want my patients to feel that their concerns have been heard, and that they have received the best and most compassionate care available. Finally, I want them to leave our office with a feeling of hope.

Fun facts about me are that I married my high school sweetheart. We have a beautiful family of three children with beautiful spouses who have blessed us with 6 grandchildren. I love to travel, spend quiet time enjoying nature and have run 5 marathons.

staffpicI received my Bachelor’s Degree from Miami University of Ohio and my medical degree from Wright State University School of Medicine. I then completed my residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at George Washington University Hospital.

Teaching and training future doctors is very important to me and I spend time lecturing and mentoring medical students as an Assistant Professor at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, Inova Campus. After having the honor of practicing Obstetrics for 16 years, I switched to practicing gynecology only so that I could spend more time with my adolescent children.

I enjoy taking care of women of all ages and I feel every patient deserves to get her questions answered and concerns addressed. In furtherance of that goal, I recently wrote the book, “100 Questions and Answers About Your Daughter’s Sexual Wellness and Development.” The health and wellbeing of young women is a favorite topic of mine and I enjoy writing about it on my website, www.forthegoodofgirls.com. I have been included in the Washingtonian’s Top Doctors in 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2012.

I enjoy spending time with my very supportive husband and two children. I love to cook, practice yoga, and explore the outdoors. A fun fact about me is that two of my great, great aunts graduated from the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania, the first medical school for women in this country, and one founded the Lillian Harris Memorial Hospital for women in Korea in 1901 where she served as a medical missionary.

staffpicI graduated from George Mason University College of Nursing in 2006. Following graduation, I became a Labor and Delivery nurse and have worked in that area since then.

I am originally from Guatemala. My family and I have lived in Northern Virginia since the late 1980’s. I love to travel, especially to places that have sand, sun, and turquoise water.

I had the privilege of joining the office of doctors Wolf and Davis in early 2011. I love our office and I hope that every patient that visits does too!

staffpicI graduated from the University of Michigan in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, concentrating in Public Health. I am currently pursuing my MBA concentrating in Healthcare Services at Strayer University. I have been working in healthcare for over a year and my ultimate career goal is to be a healthcare administrator focusing on Women’s reproductive health. I am also a dance teacher in Chantilly, VA. I enjoy teaching children from ages 6-18 in tap, jazz, and hip hop dance. In my free time, I love to shop, workout, dance, and spend time with my family and friends. My hope for our patients is that they feel welcomed, comfortable, and well cared for. I also hope that they feel I have gone above and beyond to help them out.

staffpicI have lived in Northern Virginia my whole life. My parents moved to Burke, Va from El Salvador. I grew up with two older brothers and a younger sister.

I graduated from Lake Braddock, where I played girls lacrosse all 4 years. I got into the game because I saw my oldest brother Peter play and the moment I picked up a lacrosse stick I knew the game was for me.

After graduating I attended ODU for a semester. I had to leave due to some health problems.

I have worked in the medical field for 17 years. I started in pediatrics and moved on to orthopedics, which I enjoyed very much. I moved onto OBGYN, and have found myself enjoying this specialty even more. Women's health is a very rewarding specialty. In my free time I enjoy camping, hiking and kayaking. I also enjoy the ocean and love the Outer Banks.

I hope I give our patients a sense of comfort, a smile on their face and some sort of satisfaction.
