Residency Program

About Me

I was a Clinical Research Coordinator for three years prior to starting medical school. During that time, I conducted clinical and basic science research. I worked on several projects, which provided me with a great foundation of medical knowledge and simultaneously piqued my interest in OB/GYN.

Throughout medical school, I continued to immerse myself in matters of global and women’s health. I found that I thoroughly enjoy medicine, surgery and primary care. OB/GYN lends itself to combining all three while also allowing for continuity of care. With these interests in mind, I plan to have an academic career that combines working with the underserved, research, and global health. UCSF is the perfect residency program for me as it provides strong evidence-based clinical training in all aspects of the specialty and an ideal foundation upon which to pursue these long-term goals.

What do you do outside of residency?

I absolutely love to travel. When I’m not working I’m trying to explore new countries. So far I’ve visited 24 countries and counting! When I’m stateside, I love to go wine tasting (especially in Sonoma), brunching in the city and relaxing at home with my labradoodle, Rue.
