I grew up all across the United States but spent a majority of it in Nashville, TN. I attended Vanderbilt University for undergrad where I studied Neuroscience and Chinese language. After college I moved to Chicago to attend Rush Medical College.
In medical school I began to realize the reality of our healthcare system. The inequality facing vulnerable populations across Chicago and the world motivates me to do everything I can to try and change the welfare of as many as people as possible through not only direct clinical care but public health and preventative research. In my third year of medical school I took a year off to travel to Beijing, China where I worked as a Fogarty Global Health Scholar researching cervical cancer prevention in Chinese migrant women.
I chose family medicine because of its commitment to the entire individual. Family Medicine is a specialty that truly realizes the importance of the family and community is to a patient’s health. I was very lucky to match at UIC, a program that will give me the opportunity to care for patients in a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and build relationships with people despite their ability to pay. UIC’s long tradition of dedication to the underserved and academic stature will grant me the tools necessary to pose relevant research questions that can improve the quality of life of my patients and their
communities. Finally, collaborating with a team of physicians united by a passion for underserved care will help me continue to grow and mature as a family medicine physician dedicated to vulnerable populations across the world.
Outside of clinic and research I love photography. My fiancé, Jennifer, and I are both avid photographers and we love to wander the world taking photos and adventuring.
