Hobbies, fun facts and interests 
I love any excuse to be outside; whether going on a hike, taking day trips to the beach, or going on adventures in different countries around the world! In my downtime, I love to play board games/categories with friends, read, or cook/bake (especially for friends and family!).

Why Fresno?
UCSF Fresno's Emergency Department holds a special place in my heart since it was where I was first introduced to medicine. Fresno's patient pathology and volume are unparalleled, making it the ideal place to train for EM. I feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to come back and serve the community of my hometown. The city of Fresno is also an extraordinary place. It is set in a geographically ideal location in the middle of California and is home to some of the kindest, most hard-working, and most diverse people you will ever meet!
