A little about me

I was born and spent my childhood years in Trinidad. I then relocated to the Bronx, New York and then eventually settled in Newark, New Jersey with my family. My academic studies began with The Peddie School, a boarding school in New Jersey, followed by undergraduate studies in Child Development and Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, MA, and then the American University of Antigua for my medical degree. I worked in various fields as a nonprofit educator, contributed to publishing online articles for women’s health, worked in the health insurance field, and scribed in an urgent care setting. My personal interests include learning about new cultures, traveling, volunteering, spinning classes, and drawing.

Why I love my job

I love family medicine because it allows me to not only care for the residents of the community and their families, but to be a part of a collaborative effort to promote healthier lifestyles and continuity of care. I enjoy having the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of healthcare providers and patient population.
