Medical School:
American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine

Why did you choose Valley Children’s Pediatric Residency Program?
The healthcare workers are extremely kind and passionate about their work that, at times, it does not feel like work at all. They believe in something greater than what the job expects.

Bouldering, video games, and trying new food

Advocacy and/or Research Accomplishments:
I am passionate about mentorship among the youth. I was an Eagle Scout that continued on to become a Boyscout leader for teens, helping them construct their own community projects and develop their individual character. Before medical school, I also worked as a clinical coordinator for prostate cancer research in Veterans Affairs Long Beach.

Care Philosophy:
I believe having the insight to see through different perspectives is powerful within both daily life and the clinical setting.
