About Me

Early in medical school, I considered OB/GYN because of my interest in women’s health and my passion for providing care to medically underserved communities. Although I kept an open mind through medical school, by the end of my second year, it was clear to me that OB/GYN - a specialty that balances primary care, inpatient medicine and surgery - was the choice for me. I enjoyed that OB/GYN allowed me to work with patients from diverse backgrounds, and felt that there was opportunity to positively affect the future of women’s health.

UCSF has always been a dream residency for me. Having previously lived in the Bay Area as a corps member in Teach for America, I learned of the excellent clinical care and state of the art research being done at UCSF. What attracts me most to the UCSF OB/GYN program are its core values that revolve around social justice, serving medically underserved populations and promoting equal access to health care. UCSF has a well-earned reputation for training the future leaders in the field of OB/GYN. I am honored to be part of this institution, and to work and learn from the intelligent and hardworking team of residents, attendings, and staff.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and husband. I enjoy running, hiking, dancing, eating tacos, visiting museums and exploring the many faces and places of the beautiful state of California.
