Interesting Fact: Founded the Heart & Sole 5K fundraiser and raised $5,000 for the Student Outreach Clinic

Medical interests: The most rewarding moments throughout my medical education have been when I see the light bulb go off in a patient's head, because I drew a simple picture or explained a complex medical diagnosis in a manner they could comprehend. I learned that I have a knack for teaching that is fueled by my desire to empower others through health and education.

Future Plans: I enjoy the breadth of knowledge for which the family physician is responsible, and I am excited to work in a field where I can address the questions that are often at the core of patients’ overall health. Having the opportunity to care for someone from birth to death and through generations is a unique and remarkable attribute of family medicine that I will take full advantage of, in order to deliver the best care possible.
