Narrative

I first put on a pair of ballet shoes when I was two and half years old. Since then, my life has been nothing short of a dance through vastly different journeys that have converged into a single path - osteopathic medicine. My interest in the significance of movement and its functionality makes the OMM fellowship an exceptionally unique experience that I am privileged to have the opportunity to partake in. I am excited to have found a profession where my passion for human rights and the believe that the musculoskeletal system shares a story with the internal workings of the human being have joined serendipitiously as one.

As an OMM fellow, I look forward to the opportunity to learn from my mentors and peers and to grow as an osteopathic medical student, educator, and eventually, physician. I hope to one day incorporate all of the skills and knowledge I have acquired into a practice that will benefit my patients and community. And till then, I will be dancing to the tune of ...”Don’t worry, be happy!”

“Oh the places you will go. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting...so get on your way!” -Dr. Seuss
