I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona with my parents and two older siblings. I attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ where I studied Nutritional Sciences with and emphasis in Dietetics and Biochemistry. I fell in love with the 'food as medicine' approach to healing, therefore I found that naturopathic medicine was my calling of sorts, and started down the path of becoming a naturopathic physician. Now, I am currently a student at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in ever sunny Tempe, AZ. I have special interests in nutrition, botanical medicine, acupuncture, and homeopathy. Through this site I hope to share my journey through medical school and inspire others to live naturally.
