About Me

I am deeply passionate about the underserved lesbian, gay, transgender, queer and bisexual communities. I have seen patients that have not been taken care of properly because of who they are or where they come from. I want to be that person that would advocate for patients and will do everything possible to avoid a bad outcome.
