I wanted to become a doctor because I like the combination of science, medicine, and the human aspect of this career. I love taking care of others!

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

Community health centers are such great places to work and be a part of! I love all the resources available in a CHC. This allows me to take the best care of my patients.

What do you enjoy or find most fulfilling about caring for patients?

I love taking care of multiple generations of families and the continuity of care involved with family medicine. I also love helping patients improve their health and feel better!

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

When I am not working, I am usually exercising (Peloton, hiking, trail running), trying new vegan foods, or playing with my 2 cats.

Do you have a favorite book, movie or TV show?

I love a good rom-com, high school dramas and reality TV (Kardashians, Selling Sunset)!
