I was born and raised in Ghana where I attained my early education. I Immigrated to the U.S. during my junior year of high school and completed my high school in Plainfield NJ before pursuing a BS degree in Biotechnology at Rutgers University. I completed my medical and business school education at Yale University, and I am currently here for surgical residency. I chose general surgery due to the diverse clinical opportunities and I have not been disappointed.

I have enjoyed my training, the opportunity to interact with staff and students and the ambiance of the Pacific Northwest.
