Why did you choose Valley Children's Pediatric Residency Program?
I chose Valley Children’s because they are strong advocates of the overall health and well-being of the children in this area. The program recognizes and supports residents who lead projects that target the needs of the community. Their enthusiasm and passion for their work stood out to me the most.

Hobbies: Creating music (mostly piano, drums, ukulele, and other instruments), playing video games, working out and playing basketball, photography and videography, driving and working on cars, and watching shows and movies with my wife and family.

Advocacy and Research Interests and Accomplishments: My advocacy interests revolve around outreaching to underserved communities that need resources the most. I led clinics that helped Filipino veterans of World War II and their families near Sacramento as well as those who experienced homelessness in Berkeley. I also trained coaches and led diabetes classes around Solano County. I hope to continue to help my community through initiatives that focus on mental health for my young patients.

Care Philosophy: Take care of other who took care of you. Being raised in San Joaquin County with amazing mentors who helped me at each stage of my life, I have a duty to give back to the community that raised me by providing culturally-sensitive care to my young patients, regardless of their background. I hope to serve as a mentor and role model – with ideas such as creating pipeline programs to medicine and awarding scholarships to high school students. I want to be able to provide opportunities for kids to pursue their dreams and passions.
