Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine
University of Michigan-Dearborn

I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.  I went to The University of Michigan for undergrad and Michigan State University for medical school. I consider myself a true Michigander. Going into family medicine was a no brainer for me. Before medical school I taught math for 3 years in the same areas of Detroit where I grew up. My love for teaching sprouted my want to teach my future patients, of all ages, about their health through the field of family medicine. I want to address ongoing barriers such as health illiteracy and mistrust in the medical field that I saw specifically during my training in medical school.

I am so excited to grow, train and strengthen these skills at Medstar Franklin Square. During my audition rotation I fell in love with the program. I felt so welcome during my time rotating. I admired the encouraging learning environment and how the attendings and residents interacted with their patients. I then knew Medstar was where I wanted to do my residency training. 

Lastly, I met my husband back in Michigan before starting medical school. He now works in Washington, D.C. which is what brought us to the DMV area. We live in Maryland with our beautiful little boy whom we welcomed into the world during my 4th year of medical school. I’m excited to be starting this new journey here in Maryland with my husband, our kiddo, and our puppy. I look forward to starting my residency training at Medstar and serving the people in the Baltimore area.
