Brief Biographical Sketch:

I will be graduating from UCSD medical school this June, and will start my residency in Family Medicine at UC San Diego Medical Center!

I went to high school at Bonita Vista where I played Water Polo and swam competitively. After graduation, I went to Princeton University where I studied Psychology and Neuroscience. I took time off during which I tutored, taught swimming, and worked as a veterinarian technician before being accepted to medical school.

My interests include gardening, horror movies, and hiking with my dogs.
