From a young age, I felt connected to medicine and community. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to homeopathy and Ayurveda from my family and visits to India. While pursuing my undergraduate degree in psychology in a pre-medicine track, my interest piqued in community health, health policy, and nutrition. This yearning for knowledge while also seeking answers for my own health issues led me to naturopathic medicine, where I get to combine traditional practices and my love for naturopathy with evidence-based medicine through a holistic view.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy traveling, cooking, dancing, painting, taking care of my plants, and spending time with my cat (Gobi). My own cultural experiences and experiences of being in the LGBTQ+ community continue to foster my curiosity in learning more about the history and practices of people all around the world.
