I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a B.S. in Animal Science, recently having switched career paths from veterinary medicine to healthcare. My inspiration comes from an interaction with a healthcare provider that I will never forget, who showed me so much kindness and it inspired me to want to do the same for others.
While I'm still unsure of whether I want to be a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, I do know that medicine has always been my passion. In my free time, I enjoy reading, weight lifting, and going on food adventures.
