Family Medicine

Why did you become a health specialist?

My passions are disease prevention and health promotion. I initially got into primary care as an extension of my interest in nutrition and lifestyle factors, which play a large role in many medical conditions. I overall love helping families meet their health goals to lead healthy lives.

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

Seeing patients reach their goals and feel better.

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

I like working with patients from all different backgrounds. I speak Spanish and am currently learning Arabic.

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

I love to run, hike, do yoga, and spend time with my family.
