What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
I was born into a big family, so taking care of the sick and elderly has always been a part of me.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
Cardiology is one of the most complex and extensively studied subspecialties of medicine. A cardiologist's decisions are based on guidelines and clinical studies.

As a mother, wife, and daughter, I spend time with my family as much as I can.
