Accepting New Patients


Professional Statement

I was born and raised in the Greater Seattle region and I am excited to return back home to embark on my professional career. I attended Seattle Prep for high school, and graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in biology. Following my time in the pacific northwest, I continued my education earning a doctorate in podiatric medicine from Kent State University in Ohio. Then, I completed my residency training at St. Barnabas hospital, a level one trauma center in New York City. I served as chief resident during my last year of training. I have been trained to handle a full range of podiatric medicine and surgical cases including limb salvage procedures, and surgical management of lower extremity trauma including ankle fractures. I am keen in providing the utmost care to my patients. Outside of podiatry I am involved with many volunteer organizations, especially programs which focus on education for our youth. I currently serve on the education board of the American Society of Podiatric Surgeons, coordinating the education programs for students pursuing their degree in podiatric medicine, and as a Clinical Director with Special Olympics.
