About me

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Penn. I was raised in a loving family where my mother and father taught me that hard work in education pays off in the long run and that I can be whatever I put my mind to do. I began to have inspiration to become a physician through my uncle and godfather, who is now a retired pediatrician. He went to medical school in Haiti, and came to the U.S. to raise his family. He worked hard to bring his brothers and sisters to the United States so that they too can live the American dream. With this in mind, I always stayed focused on my studies and also wanted to serve those in need. I earned my bachelor's degree in biology from Temple University and went on to Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, where I graduated as a doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO). I then received a scholarship to work with America's medically underserved populations. I have worked in rural communities in Florida and Georgia and have benefited immensely with the amount of training I have received by striving to make better lives for those with limited resources to health care. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2016 and am looking forward to continuing to serve in the medical field in our Adult Medicine Department.

About my practice

I love working for people because I am able to discuss with them their likes and dislikes. I ultimately want to make our members feel happy about themselves and with their medical care. As a DO, I was taught that treating the patient as whole person is necessary for the healing process. Diseases are an upset of the healthy being, but many diseases can be cured with proper management of the whole person. I continue to practice preventive care and look forward to exploring research on preventive health screening tools and techniques to help our members stay healthy.

How I thrive

I thrive by keeping my spirituality as a focus in my life. I have a wonderful family, with a beautiful husband and two terrific children. We love to do things together such as walking, exercising, riding bicycles, hiking and watching movies. My children are currently learning various instruments, including the violin, piano and guitar. I love to hear them practice as they often make mistakes, but eventually play with perfection. Practice makes perfect!
