What is your favorite place to visit, thing(s) to do in, or memory from living in LA?

I love eating buffalo cauliflower at one of LA’s many vegan eateries and running by the beach.


What are your areas of interest within EM or future career plans?

My academic interests within Emergency Medicine include global health, disaster management, woman’s health, and increasing diversity within Emergency Medicine. I’m passionate about serving the underserved and plan to always work at institutions that serve this population, both domestically and abroad.


Why did you choose UCLA-Olive View for residency?

I chose UCLA-Olive View for the diversity of clinical training sites, warm and welcoming faculty/residents, and the seemingly unlimited breadth it provides to explore different areas with Emergency Medicine.


What else do you do in your free time? What hobbies do you have?

In my free time, I love to explore new restaurants, cook, practice yoga, rock climb, and learn new languages. I also love relaxing with a good book, binge-worthy TV show, seeing literally any movie, and trying to befriend every animal I meet.
