About

Bio

Since 2015, I’ve been practicing across several areas of medicine: Family, Integrative, Obesity, and Culinary Medicine. I am passionate about improving lives, especially those with chronic illnesses, by providing them access to affordable healthcare whenever they need it. A personal doctor is needed to not only respond to health emergencies, but to help uncover early diseases that may limit one's lifespan. As an Integrative Medicine specialist, I believe in supporting the body's inherent ability to heal itself. So when treating chronic illness, I spend a lot of time investigating the root issues contributing to disease. Outside of work, I am staying up on my Spanish, tending to my pet plants (my eldest is two years old), playing soccer, hiking or watching the Arsenal Football Club play.
