Additional Information

Growing up just north of Seattle, Washington, I was embraced by a large family near the green foothills of the Cascade Mountains in a small town called Mill Creek. I attended the University of Washington and graduated with degrees in Biochemistry and Spanish. As a Mary Gates Scholar, I dedicated time to biochemistry research and to volunteering in a bilingual clinic. I also studied for a year in Cadiz, Spain, which solidified my love of culture and language.

Volunteering and traveling in South America developed my passion for immigrant and underserved health. After graduating, I worked as a HealthCorps patient navigator at a Community Health Center. During this time I lost my beloved sister from complications from T1 diabetes, which deepened my passion for chronic disease management and inspired me to subsequently become a chronic care coordinator. Shortly after, I began medical school at the University of Washington with a focus on underserved and Hispanic health. I worked on several projects including creating a sustainable, culturally competent chronic care program for rural communities of Central America. In 2012, I was humbled to become a Magnuson Scholar.

I continue to be inspired by my patients, colleagues and mentors and look forward to teaching and collaborating with them. Aside from my academic pursuits, I enjoy running, skiing, surfing, singing, painting and playing the piano.
