San Diego State University
Growing up in Somalia, I always wanted to be a teacher. I learned a lot from my teachers, always loved to read and wanted to help others. I have always enjoyed taking care of people, which brought me to the career in medicine. I used to practice as a midwife in Texas, and I really enjoy taking care of women, especially teen moms, and giving them the resources and support they need. I value the focus Mountain Park puts on diversity and am glad to be a part of this team.
Outside of work, I’m a busy mom. I have three boys who all enjoy playing video games, and we like to travel together. We try to visit family in Kenya as often as we can. Since we don’t have as much time to travel as we’d like, I also enjoy reading and making time for my family and friends.
