What led you to choose your area of study? Medicine is a unique specialty where you get to learn all about how the human body works but more importantly you get insight into what makes us human. We get the incredible honor of hearing our patient’s story where we piece together areas that are negatively affecting their health but also identify areas of resilience and strength.

What is one fun fact about yourself? I love all water sports, especially wake-surfing!

What useful tip(s) do you have for incoming UCSF students? My coach told me this advice and it has stuck with me: You are in medical school, you did it! Now follow the interests and activities that excite you and that you are passionate about! Forget about the resume.
