When she first moved to Richmond in 2007, Dr. Eagan worked as a youth minister and mentor for young women, and coached lacrosse for middle and high school-aged girls. Over the years, Dr. Eagan continued caring in our community and beyond by volunteering with the Fan Free Clinic (now Health Brigade) for five years during medical school and traveling with a medical mission group to El Salvador several times. Dr. Eagan credits these life experiences for enriching her appreciation for women’s health and comprehensive care.
Dr. Eagan wants her patients to feel known and heard. “I want to meet them where they are and let them know that they are in a safe space to ask questions without embarrassment and express vulnerability without fear. Further, I want them to know that going forward, we will address whatever health concerns or life challenges they encounter as a team.”
As the daughter of a physician, Dr. Eagan grew up intrigued and inspired by his work, specifically the way he took the time to care for his community— patients and colleagues. Dr. Eagan now cares for her community in much the same way. She is known for building relationships of trust with her patients and team.
If Dr. Eagan hadn’t followed her passion for caring for others, she likely would have been an artist. She graduated with a degree in studio art and has done commissioned work in the past. Dr. Eagan loves running, hiking, and biking—really any activity outside. On the weekends, you’ll typically find her in the mountains, on the trails at the river, or heading to Virginia Beach for a day on the water.
