What are your particular clinical interests?
My main passion is healthcare that involves the LGBT+ population. This population is very underrepresented in healthcare, and I want to help our often marginalized patient group have a voice and be properly cared for without judgment. I’m also interested in Addiction Medicine and the psychology behind it. I want to better understand the social determinants and mindsets behind my patients with addictions, so that I can better serve and care for them.
Why did you choose Family Medicine?
I chose Family Medicine because it is a culmination of all of the specialties of medicine. It allows me the freedom to do many things rather than limit myself to one thing in particular. This field also allows me to be a part of many people’s stories across their lifetimes. Every day I get to witness and participate in a new part of someone else’s story.
Why did you choose the Little Rock Family Medicine residency program?
I chose the Little Rock Family Medicine Residency Program because they were one of the few programs across the nation that actually mentioned an LGBT+ curriculum in their training. This program is also very diverse with residents coming from all over the world. This allows me to see patients through many different lenses.
What are your hobbies and interests outside of medicine?
When I am not in clinic or on the wards, you can find me in a “hot yoga” studio, traveling the world, or binge-watching any of the new Marvel shows on Disney Plus. I’m also an avid reader and read anything I can get my hands on. So I’m always looking for new book recommendations.
