Resident Bio:

I’m from Winston-Salem, NC, and I’ve lived in various parts of the Carolinas my entire life. I always loved learning languages, and since college I’ve enjoyed honing my medical Spanish skills to serve patients at home and abroad in Nicaragua and Peru. I’m passionate about global health and surgical care, but also how cultural background affects our interactions locally. I’m excited to be at UW because of its top-notch clinical training, diverse research activity, and compassionate team of faculty and residents who share similar interests. I’m drawn to forests and mountains, so I love how Seattle is so surrounded by national parks and yet also an epicenter for cultural diversity, great sushi and live music.
