Dr. Winston has always had a passion for women’s health with a particular interest in underserved populations and international medicine. She knew that the field of obstetrics and gynecology was for her once she started her medical school rotations and saw how vast the field was. She realized that in this specialty she could not only bring joy to patients through deliveries but also help women with other issues that arise throughout their lifetime to ensure that they live to their fullest potential. She also knew that this field would enable her to help teenage girls learn more about their bodies and what to expect as they enter into puberty.
