I am from Orange County, born, raised, and never left. I graduated from undergrad at UCI as a neurobio major in 2004 and liked UCI so much I stayed on for medical school (class of 2008) and residency (internal medicine, class of 2011). From there, I became a hospitalist at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, where I continue to practice. A few years into practicing medicine, I decided to get my MBA at UCLA concurrent with practicing in the hospital. I used those skills to start a career as a medical director for a large health plan based on Los Angeles. For 2+ years, I worked full time as a hospitalist at night and insurance medical director during the day. After learning the ropes of the insurance company, I created a consulting company, which allows me more flexibility to take on multiple projects and provide chief medical officer and medical director services for various payors throughout the state of California.
I love to travel, shop, eat out, and collect Air Jordans.
