Dr. Tabatha has devoted her life to giving women a voice and a choice when it comes to their health and well-being. As a young girl, she struggled with self-esteem and identity issues, dealt with peer-pressure, and survived the ridicule and stigma of becoming a teenage mother. As she shared in her first published book titled, From White Trash to White Coat: The Birth of Catherine’s Purpose, those events led Tabatha to find her purpose in life. With perseverance and grace, she was able to redirect her path in life and become a successful physician.
Tabatha attended Michigan State University and graduated with honors in physiology. She then earned her doctorate degree from the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine. In the decade she has been out in practice, Dr. Tabatha has cared for a countless number of women. She works hard to connect with her patients and create an ongoing partnership to help guide them to better health. Because many women don’t make themselves a priority or practice self-care, Dr. Tabatha has made it her mission to educate women on the importance of putting themselves first.
More recently, she has discovered the art of functional medicine and has been actively pursuing certification from the Cleveland Clinic’s Institute for Functional Medicine. She is always in the pursuit of knowledge because she knows knowledge is power. By incorporating functional medicine into her women’s health practice, she is able to provide women with the tools they need to optimize their health and happiness, which, in turn, allows those women to pursue their purpose in life.
