I grew up moving between West to East Africa and spent the better part of my childhood in Nairobi, Kenya. I wanted to work in international affairs and moved to Washington, D.C., to attend Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. After graduation, I worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer, co-teaching high school English in Indonesia. Towards the end of my service, I realized I wanted to continue working with people. Having bypassed all science requirements in college, I enrolled in a post-bac program at Bryn Mawr College before moving up to Boston for medical school.
I count myself very fortunate to have started my medical training at Boston Medical Center. Its singular mission to provide exceptional care without exception is the perfect description of what calls me as a physician, and why I chose Family Medicine in particular. When I came to interview at Franklin Square, I knew it was the place that matched me as a learner and would mold me into the physician who can put that type of mission into practice.
I am returning to the DMV area with my fiancé, after having met him on our freshman year floor over a decade ago. We are very excited to finally be in the same place to get a puppy!
