I was born and raised in New York City. I attended Stuyvesant High School and the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education before earning my degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I completed postgraduate training at UC Irvine, Long Island Jewish Medical Center and New York University.
I work halftime in the Urgent Care Department and the other half in the Department of Medical Informatics.
I enjoy attending church, Bible Study Fellowship, bicycling and dragonboat paddling.
