Before my career in medicine, I embarked on a four-year tenure in urban secondary education: teaching 9th and 12th grade science at Fremont High School in Oakland, CA through Teach For America, and working in education operations with Uncommon Schools in Newark, NJ. These years were transformative, reaffirming my commitment to teaching and advocacy, and revealing an urgent passion for comprehensive health care. Medicine was the ideal platform to address the healthcare gap that disadvantaged communities experience. In many ways, my decision to pursue the field of obstetrics and gynecology was the culmination and extension of my formative experiences in education, leadership, and team management. This field is where I feel that I can advocate for and celebrate with women in some of their most vulnerable times, while working on the daily to meet the needs of all levels of learners.

Why UNC?

One of my goals is to reduce the health care gap. At UNC, I am continuing to care for women from various backgrounds, and working with excellent clinicians to reduce disparities in care. The clinical and academic excellence that UNC provides as well as the ever-present team-based approach are two of the many reasons that I love UNC!
