Welcome to RPC! As a newly minted resident physician, I met Dr. Lasseter when she was chief of our training program and had already begun working to further the reproductive mental health landscape in Austin. Having already developed an interest in this area during my undergraduate years working as a nursing assistant in Nashville, I knew I wanted to work alongside her and I am thrilled to now be part of the Reproductive Psychiatry Clinic of Austin.
A native Austinite, I returned to Texas to complete my medical training at UT-Houston before closing the loop to come home and train at the UT Dell Medical School Psychiatry Residency Program where I served as chief resident and spent most of my final years subspecializing in perinatal psychiatry. While there, I worked to create elective rotations for senior residents in this area, as it remains an underserved niche even within the realm of psychiatry as a whole. When I’m not focused on my patients, you can find me dancing in a local Jazzercise class or spending time with my husband and miniature poodle pup, Heidi.
I enjoy working with my patients and their families in a collaborative model where we come together to identify goals, discuss the treatment options and make informed decisions as a team. Every parent deserves to enjoy their journey and I strive to help make that happen.
