Having grown up in Maryland, I welcomed the chance to return to my home state to attend medical school at Johns Hopkins. I have loved living with my partner and kids in Baltimore and am delighted to join the MedStar Franklin Square team!
Alongside my Bachelor's degree in Public Health at the University of Massachusetts, I worked full-time at health non-profits and as a medical case manager. Through diverse work experiences prior to medical school, I developed an appreciation for the incredibly unique opportunity the physician-patient relationship provides for transformative care. I enjoy helping people develop thoughtful plans for improving their health especially in the context of their own values and important social ties, which are deeply prioritized in Family Medicine.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy hiking (tromping around in the woods) with my family, swimming, and cooking. I am comfortable communicating in American Sign Language with patients who use sign, and I am proud to be an experienced and competent provider for LGBTQI+ patients.
