I was born and raised (mostly) in St. Louis, MO. I headed west to Stanford for my bachelor's in biology, then came back home and started a Ph.D. in neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis. However, volunteering at a free clinic in inner city St. Louis opened my eyes to the stark health disparities present in this country, and I decided to leave the research world in favor of pursuing a career in primary care.
I attended medical school at Case Western Reserve University, where I co-led several groups focused on underserved and minority health. I graduated AOA and couples matched to the University of Michigan with my partner. I like the variety of clinical practice sites the residency here affords, and having my continuity clinic in Ypsilanti lets me pursue my interests in urban underserved medicine, minority outreach, and reproductive health, while also practicing my Spanish and French.
In my free time, I enjoy aerial arts, dance, outdoors/water activities, target sports, and being a cat lady.
