A little about myself. . .
I was born in Kitchener, ON, Canada about an hour away from Toronto. I lived there until I was seven, with my parents and younger brother, and then we moved to Wisconsin. I moved again seven years later to Northern California, not too far from San Francisco. I stayed there for undergrad and went to UC Berkeley (Go Bears!). I have known since I was about ten years old that I wanted to be a pediatrician and now finally I am the first medical doctor in my family.
For medical school, I indulged my passion for travel and went to St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies. I managed to also spend my whole first year of medical school in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I continued traveling during my third and fourth year doing clinical rotations in NYC and all over California. I was finally ready to settle down for a bit and I could not have picked a better place than Baltimore and the University of Maryland! Everyone is so warm and welcoming and the program is filled with amazing and talented people. I chose to stay on for a chief year because my residency experience was so wonderful and I wanted to give back to the program that gave me so much. After I complete my chief year, I am going to be pursuing a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at the University of Minnesota.
Apart from enjoying travelling and playing tourist, in my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, watching TV and movies, and dancing. One of my life goals is to travel to every continent.
