Hobbies and interests
I have valued my experiences on mission trips, being able to provide specialized care to areas where it is unavailable. I have been fortunate enough to spend time in Honduras on more than one occasion, performing much needed head and neck surgery. I have traveled to Cambodia for a specialized mission performing nasal reconstruction, cleft lip/palate, and microtia surgery. In my spare time, I look forward to discovering new hiking trails and mountains with my dog. She may be a small black Pomeranian (IG: @tikatikapompom) but she loves the outdoors as much as I do. I also enjoy traveling, scuba diving, boxing, HiiT fitness, spicy food, and sourdough bread. While I am originally from New York City, I fell in love with life on the west coast after spending six years in the Pacific North West. I appreciate the beauty of the Bay area and everything it has to offer.
