ABOUT ME

Why OB/GYN? My OB/GYN rotation was a whirlwind of emotional childbirths, elegant surgeries, and complicated end-of-life decisions. In no other rotation did I face so many intellectual and emotional challenges. As challenging as it was, I had never been so invigorated to learn and care for my patients. I’m honored to be in this field to continue to improve the healthcare of women everywhere.

Why UCSF? I chose UCSF because they not only aim to produce excellent physicians, but they aim to produce leaders in the field. I’m confident that UCSF’s strong clinical training, excellent research opportunities, and unmatched faculty mentorship will prepare me well for a career in women’s health.

What I do outside of medicine? When I’m not in the hospital, you can usually find me playing volleyball, cooking a meal for friends, or exploring the city. Having grown up in Hawaii, I love the ocean and seek out every opportunity to be at the beach. Whenever I have the chance, I enjoy visiting my friends and loved ones back home in Hawaii.
