Biography

As one of the Chief Residents for the Pediatric Residency Training Program, I have a passion for medical education and interacting with residents. I enjoy being a source of support for our residents navigating through the tough years of residency.

Growing up, I always had an enthusiasm for children and families and figuring out how to help everyone access quality healthcare. I am passionate about social determinants of health and addressing health equity. I saw firsthand how my Spanish-speaking grandmother struggled to understand her care in an English-dominated healthcare system and how health literacy can affect health outcomes. I decided to pursue a career in medicine with these experiences in mind.

As a Chief Resident, I also spend time as an attending on the Hospital Medicine service, where we take care of general pediatric patients. I hope this time as a chief helps me develop valuable leadership and interpersonal skills while making me a better physician, patient advocate and person.

I’m applying to pediatric endocrinology fellowships and look forward to furthering my career as an endocrinologist. Although I have time to decide on an endocrine focus, I have a passion for pediatric obesity, disorders of puberty, growth disorders and transgender care.

I think all patients are unique and have their own stories. As a physician, I look forward to caring for the whole person and not just the individual.

In my free time, I love to cook, bake, hike and be outdoors with my husband!
