WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine from as far back as I can remember. I have always loved problem-solving, but with experience, I have come to love the prevention of problems as well. The realization of the power of preventative medicine and early treatment struck me more and more every day during my general surgery internship. The ability to prevent colon cancer, find breast cancer early, identify prediabetes to prevent diabetes, diagnose and treat infections early, treat Hepatitis to prevent cirrhosis and liver cancer, etc. is why I chose to go into Family Medicine. After completing residency, I have worked in many settings including outpatient family medicine and acute care, hospital medicine, clinical leadership, and served as the Medical Director of a Health Care for the Homeless program. In my current role, this background helps me connect with patients to advocate for the importance of primary care and preventative medicine, all while fixing their acute problem! I truly love what I do!
