About Me

I am privileged to be studying medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. Through my education, I am working towards obtaining the clinical knowledge, skills, and experience to meet the healthcare challenges of today and the future. I aspire to one day become not only a physician but a leader in the healthcare field and my local community.

Prior to pursuing medicine, I obtained a Bachelor’s of Science majoring in Pharmacology from UBC where I graduated as a Wesbrook scholar – one of the University’s most prestigious designations given to the top 20 overall senior undergraduate students. Here I learned how drugs act to induce physiological change and made valuable contributions to fields of anti-cancer therapeutics and sepsis research. Outside of my formal medical and research training, I am heavily involved in numerous health advocacy initiatives and mentorship programs.
