My entire training experience has allowed for the development of my extensive knowledge on the matters that affect women, teens and girls. During my subspecialty fellowship training, I was extremely lucky enough to have been trained by world renowned clinicians, surgeons and researchers in the surgical and non-surgical management of all pelvic

floor disorders”
