I was born and raised in Calabar, Nigeria, and received a bachelor’s degree in Radiography from the University of Calabar. Practicing radiography, I did not feel like I was making the kind of impact on the lives of my patients that I wanted to, so I dabbled into banking. In 2007, I moved to the United States to join my husband and decided to go to medical school. I completed my pre-med studies and received another Bachelor’s in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. I then attended the historical Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta where I received my medical degree. I recently completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology from Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, PA. During my training, my research work received both departmental and network-wide awards for the best research project. I also received the Society for Academic Specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology resident award.
I am trained in obstetrics, gynecology, and minimally invasive surgery. I find fulfillment in troubleshooting and solving complex medical issues alongside my patients. I love to connect with my patients during office and hospital visits and am always happy to provide them the highest level of care. I am excited to provide exceptional care to the women of Richmond and its environs.
I love to spend time with my family, my husband, and 4 children as well as with friends. I love to make new friends, cook, read, garden and shop.
