Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Endocrinology and Diabetes
BioI grew up mainly in the Bay Area of California, attending UC Berkeley for undergraduate (Go Bears!) with a major in Bioengineering. After a gap year working at a biotech start up, I traveled to the East Coast for medical school at the University of Pittsburgh, and then back to my birth state of Texas for residency at UT Southwestern. During my experiences in medical school and residency, I discovered that I enjoyed the logic of thinking through signaling pathways to understand the pathophysiology of endocrine disorders. In the future, I hope to combine my background in engineering with my passion for medicine to advance the field of endocrinology, especially in diabetes management. I am very excited to return to the Bay Area for fellowship in Pediatric Endocrinology. Outside of the hospital, I enjoy baking sweet treats, trying new restaurants, and running.
