Bio:

At Memorial Sloan Kettering, I manage the radiation oncology, interventional radiology, and diagnostic imaging departments to streamline workflow efficiency between patients, clinic, and procedures. I joined MSK after discovering my interest in healthcare through my InternLA internship at South LA Health Projects. In my almost 2 (!!???) years post-grad, I have created opportunities for myself that have allowed my career to progress incredibly! I want to show others how to do the same and create a space for themselves to flourish professionally, no matter the field.

Career Advice:

If you are curious about something, ask!! You have no idea the connections you will make and who can help your professional career in the process. Create that space for yourself and don't be shy!
