About me

I was born in Sierra Leone, West Africa, a country with limited medical resources, where many women die in childbirth. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an Ob/Gyn so that I could provide care to women of all ages.

I moved to the U.S. as a child and went to college at Florida A&M University, medical school at Duke University, and completed residency training at Emory University. I was at the CDC for four years after residency, where I was able to travel to many countries, working on decreasing the transmission of HIV from pregnant women to their children.

I am passionate about improving the reproductive health of women and girls around the world. I spent a few years working with the World Health Organization (WHO) on reducing maternal mortality and I currently serve as an advisor to WHO on maternal mortality reduction. I am author of a book for teenage girls and have developed a curriculum to teach girls and young women to protect their reproductive health. I also founded a non-profit organization to improve the health of women and children in Sierra Leone called The Mama-Pikin Foundation, with my husband, who is a pediatrician.

About my practice

I take care of teenagers, pregnant women and women with routine and complex gynecological problems. I enjoy taking care of teenagers, helping them understand their changing bodies and addressing the critical issues that they face as they enter adulthood. I enjoy caring for pregnant women and still get excited participating in the delivery of every single baby. Sharing in the joy that parents and families have in bringing a new addition to their family is a wonderful experience. Finally, I like caring for the different gynecologic problems that women face throughout their lives, from adolescence to menopause.

How I thrive

I thrive by spending quality time with my family - my husband, my children and my dogs. I enjoy reading books, going for hikes and traveling around the world. I also enjoy writing, as I am the author of a children's book series.

The information in this online directory is updated periodically. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. Before receiving care at a facility, select that location in our directory and verify the accepted plan types under "About this facility" to make sure it is available in your plan. If no plan types are listed, the facility is available for all plan types.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select providers and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.

Information about a provider is provided to us by the provider or the provider's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. Board certification may not reflect contracted services available from providers listed in our directory.
