A serendipitous decision to pursue a health and literacy internship near Varanasi, India, became the starting point for an incredibly meaningful 9 years, working in the field of international health as a community organizer, public health researcher, and now as a medical professional. She received a Master's of Public Health from Columbia University and has worked across sub-Saharan Africa and North America. Through her travels, she has found joy in learning with and from diverse, underserved communities and has sought opportunities to advance social justice.
She has continued to hone her skills as a clinician educator, researcher, and leader. She attended Saint Louis University School of Medicine and trained in Internal Medicine at Cambridge Health Alliance in Massachusetts, where she served as Chief Resident, above all during the COVID-19 pandemic. She is most proud of her work as a leader within the residency program and hospital at large during this time and reflected on her experience in the NEJM – Insights in Residency Training blog: https://blogs.jwatch.org/general-medicine/index.php/2020/05/ourpublic-hospital-leads-massachusetts-in-caring-for-coronavirus-patients/.
Her research is mainly in the areas of medical education and infectious diseases. She is currently leading a project as a co-principal investigator evaluating missed opportunities for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) at CHA. Her favorite pastimes include trekking through the alps on the Tour du Mont Blanc and trail running in Cape Town.
