Dr. Hardwick-Smith now serves as the Medical Director and Mindful Self-Awareness leader for the group as well as training as an Executive Coach at Rice University.
After graduating from the University of Houston, she attended Baylor College of Medicine and completed her residency training at the University of Texas in Houston, where she served as Administrative Chief Resident in 1998-1999.

As a resident, she also published a study on anesthesia for neonatal circumcision which received numerous awards and helped to change national practices regarding the humane use of anesthesia for this procedure.
Dr. Hardwick-Smith was the first gynecologist in Houston to focus on cosmetic gynecology. She has spoken at national conferences on cosmetic gynecologic topics, and her opinions have been published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, as well as being a co-author of a landmark study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal. She is an expert in menopausal health and sexuality and is currently involved in a large research project regarding this topic, which will hopefully lead to an important book helping women to navigate this new stage of life while remaining vibrant, connected and sexually satisfied.
