A hashtag that describes my tenure at IQ Solutions: #connectwithpeople

I am a conscientious physician by training and public health research professional, defined by versatility, patience, passion, and persistence. For the past several years, I have been passionately engaged in elevating population health via interdisciplinary, evidence-based public health solutions.  

I am interested in investigating risks screening and disease prevention strategies for health burdens that affect women, children, and families around the globe. Also, I am committed to improving the health of vulnerable groups through harnessing research and service, informed by best practices.

I believe in the influence of thoughtful, targeted communication to inspire individuals to become healthier, happier, and more productive. I also pride myself on knowing how to think bigger, but track and follow the devil in the details.
