I am an Arizona native, I love the diversity of people, cultures, and landscapes within this beautiful state. I grew up in a small rural town, southwest of Tucson. Red and blue pulse through my veins, I went to The University of Arizona and got my B.S. in Public Health. I earned my M.D. from the University of Arizona College of Medicine. As a fourth year medical student, I thought it was time to move out of the town. I went from East coast to West coast, north to south seeking the perfect residency program. And the best place for me was here in my hometown. I love our supportive, resourceful, and academic faculty. Our diverse patient population within the clinic and hospitals. The academic center gives me the opportunity to work with a variety of experts, learn from my fellow residents, and help my fellow community members. I went into this profession to help the underserved, and share God's love for humanity. Our program teaches how to approach and help in a holistic manner. One day I hope to work in a rural town in Arizona. With my time off, I like to nourish my spiritual and physical well-being. I enjoy Bible study, attending church events, yoga, Zumba and hiking. I also enjoy our local festivals and activities such as the Tucson Meet Yourself where different cultures gather downtown to share foods, music and arts & crafts. Feel free to email me with questions about Arizona or our program.
