Where did you grow up?
Why did you become a doctor and why did you choose your specialty?
I got into the healthcare field to help make a difference in the lives of children and families who are facing challenging medical diagnoses. I am excited to work in endocrinology because most of these conditions can be treated and these children can still lead very full, happy lives.
How long have you practiced in the Washington, DC area and what do you like most about it?
Five years. I love the history, culture, and diversity of this area.
What do you most enjoy doing outside of your clinical practice, when you’re not working?
I love to travel, read, swim, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
Describe your proudest accomplishment as a provider and/or in your personal life:
My proudest accomplishments are successfully finishing my master’s degree and passing my nurse practitioner boards.
If you weren’t a doctor, what profession would you most likely be doing and why?
I would be a lawyer. I love advocating for and defending those in need, especially underprivileged children and those who are victims of abuse.
