Throughout my childhood, my family and I relied on fast food for dinners since it was the most convenient option for my parents who worked late most evenings. Growing into my adolescent years, I continued to struggle with intermittent flare-ups of my atopic dermatitis. Like most teenagers, I noticed my unhealthy habits and how that was affecting my overall wellbeing. In an effort to optimize my health and that of my family’s, I delved into fitness, nutrition and wellness. My newfound passion led me to become a fitness trainer and obtain a graduate degree in nutrition at Columbia Institute of Human Nutrition so that I could help others attain their health goals.
As I continue on my medical school journey to become a dermatologist, I am looking forward to carrying on these principles that have motivated me to pursue a career in medicine. I want to utilize my strong foundation in exercise, diet, and wellness to provide integrative and holistic care for patients struggling with dermatologic diseases. I am passionate about education and aim to utilize this position as a LearnSkin Intern to help others expand their skin health knowledge. Above all, I am excited to work with a likeminded team that is enthusiastic about all aspects of skin health!
