"For years Ashleigh Buch hid the fact that she was transgender. The Offutt airman reported to work each day as a man, telling colleagues little about her life. Off the base, in her Omaha apartment, above, she lived as a woman, donning wigs over the hair she kept trimmed short. But as part of a wave of social change to hit the military, the Air Force instructor’s days of appearing one way at work and another at home are over."

Ashleigh is a patient of Jean Amoura, MD, a practicing OB-GYN with Nebraska Medicine who specializes in transgender care and hormone treatment. To schedule an appointment, call 800.922.0000.
