After completing my medical school training at Keck School of Medicine at USC, I knew that I wanted to continue my training with the USC Internal Medicine Residency Program. The training offered at USC is second to none. The wide array of pathology seen at LAC+USC along with the opportunity for autonomy and growth as a physician attracted me to this program. Throughout my three years as a resident my decision to stay was further solidified. The faculty and staff are truly dedicated to providing the best learning environment possible. I realized early in my career that serving the indigent population is very important to me, which further aligned my goals with USC.
Throughout my training I was given many opportunities to teach both interns and medical students. I decided to stay on as faculty to continue to foster my love of teaching and under-served medicine. I have lived in Los Angeles for seven years now and this city feels like home. I enjoy the diversity of experiences in LA; there is always a new restaurant to try or a new play to see. I love to run and just completed a half marathon in May of this year. I also love wine tasting and if anyone wants to talk about California wine let me know! I look forward to speaking with you about our program or Los Angeles.
