Dr. Tabatha Barber 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 finding her purpose in life. With perseverance and grace, she was able to redirect her path in life and become a successful physician.
Dr. Tabatha is double board certified in obstetrics and gynecology through ACOOG and is a certified Menopause Practitioner through the North American Menopause Society. She has also completed training through the Cleveland Clinic’s Institute for Functional Medicine. She cares for women one on one in her clinic as a functional gynecologist, and recently started The Functional Gynecologist Podcast, to share her wisdom and knowledge with women everywhere. 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.
