Getting to know your provider

  • Why did you choose your profession?

    I studied biochemistry at the University of Utah. After graduating, I worked in the University’s Research Park in an Immunology lab and found myself volunteering at a clinic (Maliheh Free Clinic) run by Iranian immigrants which provided healthcare to underserved populations. Through this experience, I realized that although my expertise was in data and numbers, my passion was in patient care.

  • What are your passions outside of your profession?

    Hiking, reading, knitting, and coffee.

  • If you won the lottery tomorrow, what would you do?

    I would pay off my student loans and travel to Russia.
