When did you know you wanted to become a provider?
I knew I wanted to become a provider while completing my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and learning about the human body and all the amazing and miraculous things it is capable of.
What inspired you to choose your specialty?
I am greatly interested in Internal Medicine and the ability to manage both acute and chronic issues for patients. It is a unique specialty as it allows the provider to manage, coordinate and provide care to patients throughout their adult life and take into account the many individual/family factors that can affect a patient’s care.
What conditions or procedures are you especially interested in?
I am interested in the management of chronic conditions including diabetes, hypertension, COPD, heart failure and atrial fibrillation. I believe it is important to manage these conditions well to improve patients quality of life and limit the impact these conditions have a patients long term health.
Do you volunteer or participate in community activities?
I do not volunteer at this time as I have only recently moved to Arizona. However, I am planning to work with the humane society to foster at risk animals, mainly puppies.
What are your hobbies?
My hobbies include working out, playing sports, spending time with family and watching Netflix. I plan on taking advantage of the weather and playing golf and tennis. I am also attempting to learn Spanish.
