In my last year of high school, I methodically evaluated my career options. I wanted to do something related to science and biology, that would allow me to help other people and give back to my community. Medicine was the obvious choice for me and that is why I chose to become a doctor. I am passionate about general endocrinology and diabetes care, with particular interest in pituitary and adrenal disorders, transgender care, obesity and cardiovascular disease prevention. My philosophy of care is centered around my patients. I strongly believe in educating them about their diagnosis, treatment options and plan of care; as well as creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, where they can feel comfortable. My goal is to empower them and work together to improve their lives and endocrine conditions. Outside of work, I enjoy biking, hiking and trying all the good food that the Triangle has to offer.
