About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I chose to pursue a career in medicine because I realized at an early age the impact that caring for people in this profession can have on the community. My dad was a Physician Assistant in the area before his passing and I feel honored to be following in his footsteps as a PA. His former patients have said how much he listened to, helped, and supported them. I strive to incorporate these values into my practice. I feel very fortunate to be in a position to care for others and I am looking forward to establishing my own journey as a PA.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I want to help my patients reach their personal goals to fulfill their daily activities regardless of age, background, or profession. I love learning new languages, exploring other cultures and cuisines, and broadening my knowledge of history. I am interested in global medicine as well and hope to someday travel abroad to provide medical assistance to underserved communities.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

When I am not seeing patients, I most enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and loved ones. I also enjoy playing tennis, hiking, cooking, and ballet, as well as vintage clothing and antiques.
