I am a native of Seattle, WA and after graduating from Howard University in Washington, DC, I returned home to attend the University of Washington School of Medicine. In college, I was a Biology tutor, and volunteered in the Cancer Research Center. In medical school, I became more involved with community organizations that would eliminate the Health disparities in Health care for minorities, and provide a partnership between Health education and Primary Health Care. I have also volunteered with local immigrant and homeless clinics, Urban League Health Fairs for the Underserved and have been instrumental in starting a soup kitchen that feeds homeless men each week. I have also assisted with directing Community Health Fairs with local churches in conjunction with the Center for Multicultural Health. We have been able to screen for diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
It is an honor to practice medicine, listen to people’s stories, and provide dynamic patient care. I chose Family Medicine because it integrates my roles in the community as clinician, educator and advocate.
Now graduated from residency, I decided to stay with the Valley network and practice at the Newcastle Clinic.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and friends, hanging out at parks, farmer’s markets, exploring local restaurants, and planting in my flower garden.
