Why This Program: Not only does this program have the strength of a strong supportive faculty and the support of UCSF, this program is found within a diverse patient population that is a population I plan to continue working with throughout my career. I love that this program covers the sickest and most vulnerable people between Los Angeles and San Francisco. I believe that after finishing my training here, I will be strong in all facets of medicine, which will provide my patients with the best care possible.

Interests Within Family Medicine: I am interested in preventative medicine, diabetes management, integrative medicine, especially diet and exercise.  I love that in FM I can build relationships with my patients with the goal of creating an environment of accountability and a partnership that I hope will lead to a healthier lifestyle.  

Hobbies and Interests: Things that bring me joy are gardening, biking, running/gym, Netflix and cooking.  I like all sports and the outdoors.  I also love to eat.
