Narrative (thoughts on the fellowship):
I have always had a strong interest in sports medicine and rehabilitation, which led me to be naturally drawn to the principles of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Upon beginning my training in OMM here at WesternU, I was amazed by the endless types of pathologies that can be diagnosed and treated using manipulative medicine. I feel exceedingly lucky to have had such incredible teachers in my first few years of medical school, who have taught me the extreme value of using my hands as part of diagnosing and treating patients. In my time as a fellow, I hope to pass on my enthusiasm and passion for OMM to other students. Meanwhile, I hope to enhance and improve upon my own skills both in manipulation and teaching to ultimately become a better physician.
Narrative (personal Hobbies/Interest)
In my free time, I love swimming, hiking, running, cooking and baking, knitting, planning craft projects on Pinterest (and wishing for more time to actually complete them), and eating delicious food.
