About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

I decided at the age of 8 that I would become a physician because I learned at that early age that the lack of healthcare providers has detrimental effects on the well-being of a community. I wanted to be of help to my community and a career in medicine was my solution.

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

I love that my specialty gives me the opportunity to build lasting relationships with my patients and provide continuity of care. I get to care for my patients during significant stages in their lives; from birth to reproductive stage to menopause. It is a unique field in that sense. I love being able to advocate for my patients. I also love the versatility and even the complexity of the field.

How do you connect with your patients?

I connect with my patients mostly by listening attentively to their needs, concerns and remarks. Through listening, I am able to identify shared experiences and create a safe and welcoming environment to provide individualized care. I believe empathy is a form of human connection, hence why I utilize this attribute to connect with my patients.

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

Creating recipes/cooking, traveling and exploring different cultures/cuisines, strength training, and dancing.

What is your advice for your patients?

When something feels wrong, trust your instincts. Go get it checked out.
