Why I love to teach
I’m a board-certified general surgeon with fellowship training in breast surgical oncology from Georgetown University, Washington DC. Before medical school, I researched the use of primitive plant extracts in arresting tumor growth. My clinical interests are in breast cancer imaging and diverticular disease. I’ve developed medical and surgical education at the tertiary level and in my free time, I enjoy art, cooking, and photography.
