"The sciences have always intrigued me. My interest in becoming a physician was cultivated throughout my life. Curiosity in patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions, and the sciences led me to obtain a Master's in Public Health focusing on epidemiology. I then applied for a fellowship in pulmonary disease and critical care. Specializing in Pulmonary and Critical Care allowed me the opportunity to coordinate and control the overall care of critically ill patients and those with pulmonary disease. As a pulmonologist, I also am interested in the field of interventional and diagnostic pulmonology. I seek out new opportunities to improve my skills in practice and care of patients."
