My Passion for Healthcare

Growing up in a family of medical caregivers, including many heart surgeons, I have always had an interest in medicine and gaining a deep understanding of how the human body works. Psychiatry is what I became passionate about after witnessing family and friends struggle with mental health problems. I realized mental health is a crucial component to overall health, and is too often overlooked. As a member of the Seton Psychiatry Consultation and Liasion team, I work with other medical specialties and hospitalists to help our medically ill patients heal their bodies and minds.
