Resident Bio:

I was born in Jamaica, which is where I spent the first 11 years of my life prior to my family moving to Miami, FL. In high school I developed an interest in the chemical and biological sciences, and was also introduced to the sport of rowing. I subsequently headed to the West Coast to Stanford University where I majored in chemistry and was a member of the women’s open weight rowing team for two years. Following undergrad, I worked at Apple Inc. on a small health technology research and development team before returning to Stanford to pursue my medical education. My clinical interests include breast reconstruction and microsurgery, with special interests in determinants of surgical care, patient-centered surgical outcomes and global surgical education. I was drawn to UW Plastic Surgery by the diverse patient population served at the different clinical sites, exceptional attendings who are advancing the field and the inspiring co-residents who will support me on this journey.

Personal Interests:

Cooking Jamaican food, pottery, knitting, hiking, indoor cycling and binge watching shows on Netflix
