A little about me

I was born in Ghana and raised in Newark, New Jersey. From coaching high school soccer to serving as youth president for my local church, I must say I delight in seeing young people live healthy and succeed in what they do. I am committed to learning, and diligent in my quest to grow socially and professionally. My professional goal is to serve in underserved communities. I enjoy traveling, reading and playing various kinds of outdoor sports.

Why I love my job

Family medicine does not only allow me to manage patients’ physical, emotional, and psychological needs, but it also gives me the opportunity to form lasting relationships with patients and their families.
