I am proud to call North Carolina home. After growing up in the Triangle, I attended Stanford University, where I studied human biology and creative writing (poetry). Working as a childbirth/death doula further solidified my interest in patient care and in pursuing a career as a physician.
Since starting medical school at UNC in 2016, I have prioritized experiences related to breaking down silos and addressing social determinants of health. I’m deeply invested in improving access to high-quality primary care, and I’m using my time in business school to explore innovative models of healthcare delivery.
When I’m not writing or speaking about health equity, I enjoy spending time outdoors, entertaining my roommates with my marginally above-average musical talent, exploring the local food and drink scene, and swimming. Regarding my post-MBA career, I’m most inspired by individuals and organizations committed to science, sustainability and justice.
