I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I did not go far for medical school and graduated from Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine in 2010. Following that I was accepted to the Washington University in St. Louis / Barnes Jewish Hospital internal medicine residency and graduated in 2013. I spent the next year working as a hospitalist and following that I spent a few years as a primary care physician in Dallas, Texas. I moved back to Houston after being accepted to the MD Anderson Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship and graduated in 2018 and I joined the faculty at UTHealth in 2018.

My current research interests are in symptom management in palliative care patients and current focus is providing quality care to patients and families at Memorial-Hermann and LBJ.
