I am very pleased and excited to join the team here at Padilla Family Medicine. I have practiced emergency and internal medicine since becoming a physician assistant (PA), and found my true passion in primary care/family medicine. I feel fortunate to be a part or a clinic and health care team that values healing, caring, empathy, and compassion to their full extent.
I was born and raised in a small town in New Hampshire and knew since I was a child that I wanted to help others to the best of my abilities. For this reason I became a paramedic and eventually, cultivating my interest in medicine and science with my passion for helping others, earned a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Stony Brook University in New York.
I love to travel, read, and to be active. I am currently enjoying exploring Southern California
