About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

Anatomy and Physiology intrigued me when I was in school, which initially sparked my interest. Then I chose to pursue a career in medicine as I have always enjoyed helping people and I wanted to be able to help people live a pain free life.


What I want my patients to know about me:

I strive to live a healthy lifestyle and I am a yoga instructor.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

When I am not seeing patients I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, baking and yoga.
