Education and Credentials

“I developed a passion for science while in college, and was interested in a career where I could help people,” Dr. Newby said. “Medicine was a natural field. It didn’t take long to realize that Ob/Gyn was the specialty for me. Being able to share in the joy of bringing a child into the world is every bit as thrilling now as it was back in medical school.

The achievement she is most proud of has been, and continues to be, balancing the demands of a busy medical practice with her young family.

“My husband and three young daughters are incredibly supportive,” Dr. Newby said. “Their love and encouragement help make me the best mom and physician I can be.”
Outside of work, she loves to travel, exercise and play the occasional round of golf. Most of all, she enjoys spending time with her family.
