I was born in Hawaii and continue to enjoy visiting my relatives there, but I have lived in the mainland since age 8 when my family moved to Centerville, Utah. During my teenage years, I loved playing soccer and doing the sport of luge. Amidst seeing doctors for various sports-related injuries and volunteering at a community hospital, I fell in love with medicine.
I completed my undergraduate in neuroscience at Brigham Young University in Utah and then headed to University of Utah for medical school. While on a family medicine rotation in rural Utah, I fell in love with the variety and continuity of the specialty. I especially love obstetrics and pediatrics and plan to practice full spectrum family medicine.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy doing pilates, hiking, rollerblading, playing the piano, traveling, eating, and continually developing new interests. I am excited to be in the Pacific Northwest now and explore a new area of the country! I’m very excited to start my newest hobby—kayaking!
Post graduation, I am starting a new practice in Boise, Idaho to also include teaching.
