Brief Bio

During college, I pursued the unique opportunity to perform research at Baylor College of Medicine to contribute towards a cure for type 1 diabetes.  Our research was aimed at regenerating beta cells in non-obese diabetic mice using gene therapy.  Prior to medical school, I spent a year as a coordinator for over 120 Hurricane Katrina evacuees that had been displaced to Houston; during this time, I realized that I had a passion for exploring psychological and social barriers affect health and well-being.  Based on my own personal experience with type 1 diabetes, I entered the field of pediatric endocrinology to help youth with type 1 live happy, healthy lives while dealing with the constant challenges that diabetes presents.

Brief Bio

I grew up in the east bay area and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 12. I studied electrical engineering and computer science at U.C. Berkeley (Go Bears!) with the hope of applying my knowledge to diabetes technology.  The significance of clinical practice became clear to me after my younger sisters also developed diabetes.  I decided to devote myself to medicine and pursuing a career in both adult and pediatric endocrinology.
