About Me

Why OB/GYN? I went to medical school thinking that I was going to be a pediatrician but I always knew that I had an interest in women’s health. It was not until my third year did I realize that OB/GYN would be the place that I felt most at home. I learned and became increasingly fascinated with the physiology and complexities of pregnancy. Additionally, the diversity of work in the field allows for patient provider relationships that are not just confined to the operating or exam room, but instead a merger of both. My gynecologic oncology sub-internship further highlighted the connections and the humanity exemplified towards patients in this field. I am passionate about underserved medicine and working with women from disadvantaged backgrounds in reducing health disparities that disproportionately affect them.


I wanted to be apart of the UCSF family because of the commitment to diversity and providing health equity to underserved patient populations. I encountered incredible physicians passionate about the same things that I cared about while being unbelievably humble and kind. This place really prioritizes unity and creating a work environment that takes care of one another.

What do I do outside of residency?

Travelling!! I love to go to different parts of the world and experience different cultures and foods! There is so much to see in this world and I am working towards seeing as much as I can! Exercise is a huge part of wellness for me. I enjoy running long distances outdoors and weightlifting. I love to feel strong! I am excited to be closer to home so I can see my family as often as I can. Looking forward to reconnecting with friends that I grew up with in Bay!
