Where are you from? Eagle Pass, TX

Where did you go to medical school? Wake Forest School of Medicine

Why did you choose psychiatry? Even before medical school I knew my heart belonged in psychiatry. This field has the power to heal the body through an individual's mind and soul, which is unique in comparison to other areas of medicine.

Why OU? When I came to my interview at OU it was so different from all my other interviews across the country. The people at OU are welcoming and approachable, which is very important in a learning environment.

Hobbies? Traveling, the outdoors, learning about different cultures, yoga

What do you like about Oklahoma City? With plenty of sunshine all year round you can feel a vibrant energy as OKC keeps flourishing and expanding.
