Resident Bio:

I moved frequently growing up, spending significant portions of my childhood in Manila, Philippines; Cleveland, Ohio; and Uniontown, Pennsylvania. I studied molecular biology in undergrad, followed by one semester of dental school before deciding to change paths and pursue medical training due to a family experience with cancer. During medical school I was involved in research on outcome disparities following surgical treatment of liver cancer and patient-reported outcomes in colorectal surgery. Prior to medical school at Pitt, I lived and worked in Seattle for several years and am excited to return for residency.

Why UW?

I was impressed by the welcoming, enthusiastic and close-knit UW residents and faculty. Each was passionate about their respective fields and surgical education, but also improving diversity and equity in surgery. I also sought a program with diverse training sites and a commitment to serving vulnerable and marginalized populations. UW was a clear fit with its combination of a leading academic center and Harborview Medical Center (as well as a strong Children’s hospital and VA).
