Hobbies, facts, and interests
I love hiking, trying new foods, cooking, playing my ukulele, and socializing. Catch me at happy hour!

Why Fresno?
Everyone in the program is so welcoming and down to earth. The attendings genuinely care for you and your wellness. And the area is fantastic! It’s so close to Yosemite, Sequoia National Park, a number of different lakes, and a bunch of wineries!

What are your other career interests (specialties/fellowships)?
I’ve always been interested in pulmonary critical care, but my palliative care rotation was also very intriguing. I’m keeping my options open.

What are your research interests?
Not sure yet, I’ll let you know when I figure it out!
