I was born and raised in Providence, stayed here for undergrad and medical school and now am excited to continue my training here in Family Medicine. I spent eight years based in New York City working in theater (also as a freelance radio producer and full-spectrum doula) before completing a post-bac at Bryn Mawr. Transitioning to a life and career in medicine seemed a natural extension of my prior work listening to stories, teaching self and community advocacy skills, and working to improve access to safe, supportive reproductive health care. As a medical student, I served on the national board of directors for Medical Students for Choice and worked extensively with our student-run clinic housed at Clinica Esperanza. I am grateful to continue my training in Rhode Island and am excited to be a part of the workforce committed to reducing health disparities and improving the lives of all who live and seek medical care here.
