About Me

I have had the distinct good fortune of getting to work with and learn from diverse communities all over the globe. Thus, my approach to patient care has always been one based on mutual respect, teamwork, and shared decision-making. Given my prior training in general surgery, family medicine, and public health, I am focused on being able to provide the following: comprehensive chronic disease management with a focus on behavior change and food as medicine, serious illness conversations and long term care planning, full access to clinic-based procedures, and a holistic approach that highlights the vital role of mental health and emotional well-being. Outside of medicine and public health, I love spending time with family and friends, being immersed in nature, traveling, cooking, practicing yoga, and exploring creative outlets like painting, pottery, and dance. I would be honored to get to be your doctor and welcome questions from my patients. I look forward to learning about my future patients and providing them with the very best care.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

I have had the opportunity to work with diverse academic and non-profit institutions during my career and look forward to many more years of research and collaboration. My future goals include additional research and health innovation on strengthening primary care worldwide, developing systems for improved physician well-being, and tackling systemic racism as a public health issue. I foresee that these research endeavors will further enrich the care I provide to my patients and connect me with exemplary health care providers across the globe.
