    After four years as a registered pharmacist, Dr. Sheila Bouldin entered medical school in Florida and completed her residency there. A Jackson, MS, native, Dr. Bouldin returned to her home state and entered private practice in Biloxi. Family ties brought her back to the Capitol City, joining the OB/GYN faculty at UMMC in 2002, where she serves as residency director.

    "I chose obstetrics and gynecology because I enjoy taking care of women throughout all phases of life. Women, for the most part, take active roles in their health care and go for preventive check-ups. I also enjoy witnessing and participating in the joy of bringing a new life into the world. This alone makes sleepless nights and long hours bearable."
