Currently Employed By: Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Pediatric Resident – PL2
Updates: I’m currently in the 2nd year of my Pediatric Residency at CHOP and enjoying the challenges that come with higher acuity patients!

I am slowly figuring out where my interests lie and deciding between Primary Care and Nephrology. However, my passion for Global Health is my main driving factor and I was able to participate in a Primary Care elective in the Dominican Republic last year. I look forward to engaging in different experiences within the next year and a half!
