Both my parents were primary care physicians. I saw how rewarding their work was, and I wanted to follow in their footsteps.  I have a passion for educating patients about small lifestyle changes that can have a huge impact on their overall health. I am also interested in helping patients improve their health through weight management.


Reading, traveling, exercising and spending time with my family and friends.
