I grew up in Bellevue, Washington and attended Emory University where I obtained a bachelor of science in anthropology and human biology. I returned back to the Pacific Northwest where I have been at the UW for my medical training. My clinical interests include preventive cardiology, echocardiography, and medical education. In my free time, I enjoy exploring new breweries, tending to my indoor plants and playing Monopoly Deal.
