QWhat’s the best advice you’ve received, and how has it helped you?
A One of my mentors during my residency at Baylor College of Medicine told me to find my passion. He said, “When you figure out what it is, really make it your thing.” His advice was integral to how I shaped my career. I have sharpened my expertise by focusing specifically on facial plastic surgery. Working exclusively on the face and neck, I am well-versed in the many nuances of facial anatomy, enabling me to customize every procedure to fit each patient’s unique anatomy and personal preferences. I’ve honed my skills, training and research on the newest and best techniques within my specialty and keep current with the latest developments to ensure I deliver the best possible patient outcomes. 

QHow do you measure success? 
A Happy patients and a happy family. If my girls and my husband are happy, I’m happy. At work, it’s following up with patients; I love seeing the excitement in their eyes, knowing they appreciate not looking like a different person, just a better version of themselves. Because of my specialty, I see patients from all over the world with varying ideals of what makes someone beautiful. My goal is to bring out whatever natural beauty they would like to see. 

QWhat is one thing patients should know about your practice? 
A We’ve brought on an excellent surgeon who specializes in body plastic surgery. Many patients have asked about such procedures, and I’m excited to grow my practice to meet their needs.
