WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a family medicine resident and love working with my patients to both treat disease and maintain health. When I was little, I thought I wanted to be a teacher because that's what my dad did. After realizing my love for science, I chose medicine as a field because I can apply science daily to help people. From newborns to geriatric patients, I enjoy working with all ages and complexity of patients. Now, as a practicing physician, I often find myself educating patients on ways to lead healthier lives. I enjoy working with individuals to help achieve health and a high quality of life despite whatever medical concerns they may be facing. I speak both English and Spanish, and I have spent time living in Mexico and Ecuador. Outside of medicine, I you can find me running, biking, swimming, hiking, spending time outdoors, exploring Durham and the Triangle area, or trying a new restaurant.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I enjoy working on small research projects driven by what I see in practice. Recent projects have included: length of breastfeeding in mothers at a federally-qualified health center after the implementation of a group breastfeeding class, analysis of causes of tibial stress injuries in female division I fencing athletes, and community health analysis in a rural Andean indigenous village in Ecuador
