Working with a multi-specialty practice is wonderful. Having access to colleagues from different specialties allows us to bounce ideas off of one another and provide seamless care. If I need a patient to been seen by another specialty, I can help expedite the evaluation and easily speak with that colleague about the patient’s concern.

During my residency in pediatrics, I worked with immunodeficiency patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation. This is what first spiked my interest in the field. After that, I did a rotation in allergy, immunology and pulmonology and realized I really enjoyed the specialty. The specialty of allergy and immunology is an area of continued growth and advancement. We are discovering new things about allergy, asthma and the immune system on a daily basis. This makes it an exciting field to be a part of. I also found that there was so much we could do to get patients feeling better and this is particularly rewarding.
6. What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, drawing/painting, practicing yoga and mindfulness, spending time outdoors and going into the city to catch a show.
7. What’s on your bucket list?
I would love to write a children’s book one day would also like to travel to every continent.
