Why did you choose OBGYN?
I chose OBGYN as my specialty because it combines my passion for women's health, the joy of delivering new life, and the opportunity to support and empower women throughout their reproductive journey. It's a privilege to provide comprehensive care and be part of such significant moments in my patients' lives.

Why do OBGYN at UCSF Fresno?
After completing an away rotation at UCSF Fresno, I knew that this was the perfect residency program for me. I trained in the Central Valley during medical school and developed a profound appreciation for its diverse population. At UCSF Fresno, I have the opportunity to continue serving this community in a high volume, high acuity setting, allowing me to grow as a compassionate OBGYN. Even better, I can do that while being surrounded by supportive and kind faculty and co-residents!

I grew up in Santa Clarita, California and fell in love with competitive dance for most of my life. As a high school senior, I was on the #1 dance team in the nation and ranked in the top 10 national soloist. I am also a black belt in karate! In my free time, you can probably find me at a local coffee shop or exploring new restaurants in Fresno. I also love being outdoors, playing board games, watching Survivor, and hanging out with my cat Mango.
