About

Bio

Internal medicine is my passion, it's like "chocolate for the brain." The best part of being a general internist though, isn't the intellectual feast, it's changing people's lives for the better. Helping people overcome serious health challenges and living life to the fullest is what I enjoy most. At Humboldt State University I received my BS with a Double Major in Environmental Biology and Botany. After working as an avian biologist during summers and for two years post graduation I went back to HSU to study natural products organic chemistry and mycology. Before long, I realized I preferred working with people, and applied to medical school. I am proud to be alumni of the George Washington University School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic IM Residency and NHSC Scholarship recipient.
