Share Your Story

There are so many remarkable woman physicians with terrific stories that should be shared with others. Most of these women work without celebrity, out of the public eye, yet live exciting and rich lives full of accomplishment and achievement. It’s time to let the world hear and appreciate what these women have done and still do.

Whether that physician is you or someone you know, we want to hear from you. Our mission is to use Healer as a platform to share these stories. All forms of media are accepted – written, audio, video, etc. so be creative, and send it our way!

Below is a short clip of an interview with her in 2012 at her office.

Some doors are hard to open, especially doors leading to the practice of medicine.

But there are today, Extraordinary Women whose persistence, determination, courage, and commitment, gave them the strength to break through that door and achieve wide-ranging careers in medicine.
