Simone Whitmore is an independent OBGYN who runs both her practice and house with an iron fist. She and her more laid-back husband of 16 years, Cecil Whitmore, have two sons, Miles, 14, and Michael, 10. Simone graduated from Spelman College with a degree in biology/pre-medicine and earned her doctorate from East Tennessee State University. She completed her residency at Boston Medical Center and became a Board Certified OBGYN in 1999. From 1999 to 2004, Simone worked in various practices including Duncan-Cody Medical Group, Arista OBGYN and Castillo, Walters and Whitmore. She has owned North Perimeter OBGYN since 2004 and is a solo practitioner, allowing her to make her own rules. While her staff may call her "The Warden" and "Witchmore," Simone simply likes hard workers and refuses to settle for mediocrity. Simone is a member of the American College of OBGYN and the American Board of OBGYN. In her spare time, Simone participates in a mentor program with Spelman College and a local high school. When her packed schedule allows, Simone loves to shop, socialize, travel, and catch up on much-needed sleep.
