Jhaleh Kousari, CWHNP
I began my career as a registered nurse in labor and delivery. While my intention was always to become a physician right after high school and undergrad in college, I had to settle into life in a new country and pursue my career first as an L&D nurse, then as an advanced practitioner after my children were in middle school. Specializing in women’s health is a function unique and very private and sensitive to many women. I couldn’t think of another job I would rather be doing. The fact that this field takes care of women throughout the decades and offers an opportunity to manage them through some of their most distressing times, was one of my inspirational factors to choose this field of practice.
I love what I do. I think taking care of women is definitely my calling in life. I feel a strong connection treating women; emotionally, mentally, and spiritually through their health and wellness. My approach is very holistic. I also enjoy being a sounding board for women, and it became one of the most attractive aspects of my job, the conversations, and I felt that I could be really helpful.
I love hiking and walking the trails and beaches; enjoy the open-air relaxation and yoga for mind wellness as well as physical activity. Baking and gardening are the other passions that I am more and more getting fascinated by.
