Why did you become a doctor?

I found strength through helping others in need. I understand the importance between a patient’s behavioral and medical health and how one can impact the one another.  I thoroughly enjoy seeing a patient grow through the therapeutic process.

What attracted you to a community health center for your practice?

I love the collaborative approach that you find in a community health center.  Working together among different disciplines for the betterment of a patient is very rewarding.

Do you have hobbies or a way you like to spend your time away from work?

I am trained in numerous mindfulness approaches and practice meditation and yoga regularly. I am also an avid runner – even in the Arizona summer heat.
