DO: AT Still University, Kirsksville College of Osteopathic Medicine
Academic / Professional Bio: 

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA.     
Why did you choose UA Family Medicine?    
For so many reasons! I would say, in general, family medicine was the one specialty that fit everything I desired: developing long-term relationships with your patients, being center of a person’s health, establishing preventative care, and just being able to be knowledgeable of all subject matters without limiting myself to one specific field.
UA specifically is the hub for integrative medicine I was seeking in all my residency programs but never had a program as robust as UA. It also had so many alternative tracks to craft your particular skillset and niches, which is another thing I wasn’t able to find in other programs. And mostly, I am very big into disability care and UA has strong ties and opportunities to get involved and impact this patient population directly.
What are you most excited about for life in Tucson?  
The nature and the food! I will miss my beaches of course, but I am excited to explore what the desert life has to offer and to become immersed within this community.
What are your interests or hobbies outside of Medicine?    
Latin dancing (salsa, bachata, etc), hiking, ocean sports, skiing, getting more into yoga/meditation, and always down to try anything involving exercise and mental well-being J
What are your professional interests within Medicine?     
Advocacy for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD), Integrative Medicine, Healthcare policy/advocacy, OMT, immigration health
