Obstetrics – Gynecology, Albert Einstein Medical Center

About Me

I am originally from Sammamish, WA and I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Washington in Seattle, where I received a BS in Biology and a BA in Spanish. While in college, my mom was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer, which eventually claimed her life. This devastating diagnosis opened my eyes to the unique health care needs of women and the importance of a healthcare team that instills trust and confidence in their patients. After completing my undergraduate degrees, I spent two years with the Peace Corps serving as a Community Health Promoter in a rural community in Paraguay. I worked to support various needs across my community in sexual and reproductive health, maternal and child health, gender equality, and non-communicable disease prevention. I completed my application to medical school during my Peace Corps service because I saw firsthand the value and positive impact a physician can have in a community. I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to return home to Washington state for medical school at the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine.

Hopes & Aspirations

As a future obstetrician-gynecologist, I look forward to becoming an advocate for all my future patients,” says Staudinger.

I will be there for my patients battling cancer, patients with chronic pain, pregnant patients, patients having difficulty conceiving, and everything in between. I will empower women to create their own reproductive, sexual, mental, and physical health goals and then be there to support them through whatever their goals may be.
