Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine – Virginia Campus
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

I was born and raised in Falls Church, Virginia, just a few miles outside of Washington, D.C. I went to Virginia Tech for my undergraduate degree where I studied Biology and Spanish. My junior year, I completed an immersive study abroad program in Valencia, Spain to further my Spanish fluency and began developing medical Spanish. After graduating from Virginia Tech, I worked in a cardiology office in Northern Virginia for a couple of years. I loved Blacksburg so much that I returned for medical school where I attended the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM). While at VCOM, I traveled abroad to El Salvador to provide health care services as a part of VCOM’s international outreach programs.
I was drawn to Family Medicine early in medical school because of the ability to work with patients of all ages, to establish close and long-lasting relationships with patients, and really engage with the local and underserved communities. That is ultimately what really excites me about medicine and is exciting about training at MedStar Franklin Square. 

I am an avid sports fan, especially women’s soccer and football. My husband, our beloved dog, Roxie, and I are eager to explore our new home in Baltimore with hopefully more puppies to come!
