About me: I love exploring the great outdoors, discovering new breweries and coffee shops in San Diego, and cheering for the Fighting Irish. I lived in Miami, FL for four years in medical school, where I studied for my Master of Public Health and became involved in a global health project focused on resident education in Haiti. In my spare time, I enjoy experimenting with digital art as a tool for medical professional and patient education.
Why I chose UCSD: I loved the opportunities to work in global health, both locally (in San Diego and Tijuana) and abroad (in Mozambique and elsewhere). I also wanted to get the best training possible in both medicine and pediatrics, and UCSD provided that balance. Finally, all of the people I met on my interview day were awesome and I'm so lucky to get to call them my friends and colleagues now 🙂 The people here are amazing!
Favorite place in San Diego: Sunset Cliffs
Favorite UCSD memory: There's so many, but I'll never forget kayaking/paddle boarding across the San Diego Bay for free waterside seats to a Queen impersonator concert at Humphreys by the Bay!
