Dr. Hemsell graduated magna cum laude from UL Lafayette in 2005 with a degree in biology. She earned a medical doctorate in 2009 from LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport before completing a residency in obstetrics and gynecology in June at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

In addition to traditional obstetric and gynecological services, the group provides minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy, ultrasound, bone density testing, laser services for hair removal and skin rejuvenation and tattoo removal.

During her academic career, Dr. Hemsell earned several accolades, including the prestigious Ronald B. George Scholars in Medicine Award and the Nathan Bernstein Scholarship Award for Academic Excellence. Dr. Hemsell is a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as well as the Louisiana State Medical Society.
