I enjoy good coffee, yoga, and time spent with my family and friends.

I do not enjoy studying for hours.

What keeps me going through of hundreds of lectures, countless pages of reading, and endless days spent in the library quiet section? Knowing that at the end of it all, my knowledge will transform into services for those in need. After a summer spent in Washington D.C. as an American Medical Association Government Relations Intern, and as a Health Policy Fellow with the American Association of Public Health Physicians, I learned that healthcare is complicated system. I make sense of the complications by staying active in the medical community and keeping the goals in mind. As a public and global health advocate, I’m in it for my patients, my community, and the world. I am ignited by global healthcare.
