Education: University of Southern California
I grew up in Los Angeles and my family has always been very service oriented. That’s why I got into healthcare. Before moving to Phoenix, I worked with the homeless population in LA.
I was attracted to Mountain Park because of the integrated healthcare model. I love the team approach we use here. There are a lot of experts in the same place so it’s nice to be able to lean on each other.
As a healthcare provider, I always try to meet my patients where they are. It’s important to understand that even if someone could be doing better, they are doing the best they can right now. I go into each of my consultations with empathy, compassion and patience. It’s important to listen to the patients. They are experts on themselves.
When I’m not working, I love to cook and FaceTime with my family and friends back in LA.
