I have a passion for medical education and underserved patient communities, so my job at the Palo Alto VA suits me perfectly. I have the joy of being a course director for the Stanford Internal Medicine Medical Education Elective (along with Drs. Sharmin Shekarchian and Poonam Hosamani), which is one of my very favorite things in life. The best things about being a doctor are learning new things each day, bearing witness to the human experience of illness, and taking part in relieving suffering and promoting health within my community. My hobbies include anything outdoors, working in my garden, and baking up delicious treats.
