Getting to know your provider

  • Why did you choose your profession?

    I came upon medicine in an interesting way. I have always been interested in history and how things evolved over time. I studied anthropology in my undergraduate and did a study abroad in rural Ethiopia, aka a fossil hunt. I found the evolution of disease and the human body so interesting, especially after witnessing most of my camp develop malaria or parasites. I decided my path was in medicine, particularly in global health and underserved communities.

  • Why do you work at NOAH?

    My journey into medicine has been about embracing cultural and economic differences and finding a way to reach people through medicine. Healthcare is no easy thing to navigate for patients and I feel like working at a federally qualified healthcare center like NOAH, will help provide my patients with the best resources possible when it comes to managing their health.

  • What are your passions outside of your profession?

    My husband and I are very passionate about animals, including our three pups and cat at home. We have fostered many times in the past and would love to open up a pet shelter or rescue one day. I am also an avid crafter, baker, and love to plan a party!

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

    I would pay off my loans and use the rest to travel the world with my husband…and somehow find a way to bring my dogs with me!
