Dr. DeSantis is a native Texan, born and raised in Houston. She first left Texas to pursue her residency training in OB/GYN at Mercy Hospital in Chicago, IL. While at Mercy, she received the Resident Achievement Award from the Society of Laparoscopic Surgeons and the Special Resident in Minimally Invasive Gynecology Award from the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. Her training in Chicago exposed her to diverse experiences and learning in a full range of obstetrics and gynecology. She completed her training there in 2015, and moved to Austin to be close to family.
Dr. DeSantis loves being an Austinite and enjoys spending time with her husband and their dogs, Kady and Samwise. She joined the AOGA team in 2016, and with her warm bedside manner and bright smile, her practice is quickly growing!
Dr. DeSantis is especially interested in the importance of the patient-provider relationship. She is devoted to the education of her patients, and the philosophy of partnered decision-making is at the core of her practice.
