Nicole Lee Plenty, MD, MPH

Maternal Fetal Medicine


Dr. Nicole Lee Plenty is a double board-certified OB/GYN and Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist, blogger, public speaker, and patient advocate. 
Although standing just shy of five feet tall, she has a giant, bubbly personality and even bigger vehemence for service. Despite being raised from humble beginnings in the rural town of DeRidder, Louisiana, Nicole attended Xavier University of Louisiana where she held the title of Miss Xavier University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with honors. She then obtained a dual Medical Doctorate (MD) degree and Master of Public Health (MPH) with a concentration in Health Systems Management from Tulane University. Dr. Plenty completed her OB/GYN residency training as well as Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center where she also earned a Master of Science degree concomitantly.
Nicole is passionate about youth mentorship, health advocacy, and work equity for women of color.  After experiencing a difficult pregnancy herself, to increase her advocacy efforts, she launched Pregnancy Pearls with Dr. Plenty, a vlog and podcast she created to help patients advocate for themselves by providing pre-/post-conception advice and education regarding complications of pregnancy.

She has received local, state, and national honors for her involvement in health policy, mentorship, and her work in health advocacy.  Among those, she has received Top 40 under 40 recognitions from the National Minority Quality Forum, the National Medical Association, the Indianapolis Business Journal, as well as her alma mater, Xavier University of LA.  She has served as an advisor to various companies, most recently being the Women’s Health Advisor for Physician Promise, a new telehealth company, and a clinical instructor for Medical Education Without Borders.

Dr. Plenty is the proud wife of Rev. Dr. James Anthony Plenty.  Together, they have a son named Harrison, and their fur baby, Sophie.
