Why did you choose Albuquerque/this PA residency?

I was interesting in completing an emergency medicine residency when I started PA school so when the opportunity came to apply at UNM I grabbed it. I’m excited to be part of this new residency and I think that I will gain the experience and skills needed to be a great emergency medicine PA.

What was your “previous life”, before PA school?

I was an EMT and worked as an ER tech for many years.

What are your hobbies?

Dance, Yoga, Travel

What was the best job you ever had? Worst Job?

I think I’m obligated to say my best job was working as an ER Tech at UNM but bartending in Hawaii fun too. The worst job I ever had was an ER Tech in Honolulu.

Who is your favorite band?

I don’t have a favorite. I love lots of bands.

What is your favorite movie?

I love the Emperor’s New Groove. It’s adorable.
