Why did you become a doctor and why did you choose your specialty?
I was fortunate to have a great pediatrician who took care of me while growing up, and his bedside manner first got me interested in the field of medicine. I ultimately chose to pursue a career in medicine to function as a life-long learner and teacher and to also advocate for those in need. The field of Infectious Disease appeals to me since the pathogens can manifest in so many different ways, and I enjoy the diagnostic and management challenges of these illnesses
How long have you practiced in the Washington, DC area and what do you like most about it?
I have enjoyed visiting Washington, D.C. in the past, and I am excited to now live so close to so many historical sites and monuments. I am also excited to try out all the Atlantic seafood.
What do you most enjoy doing outside of your clinical practice, when you’re not working?
I got into cooking and baking as a means of stress relief while in medical school, and to this day I still enjoy my time in the kitchen. Photography has also been a longtime hobby of mine. Additionally, I enjoy reading Nero Wolfe mystery novels.
