Personal History:

I graduated from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 2008 and completed my pediatrics residency at the University of Maryland in 2011.

During my time on the Comfort, I worked in Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica. I joined the division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine in 2012.
