What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
As I made a decision to study Biochemistry for Undergraduate education, I started an interest in the medical career during High School.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
I like the Endocrinology field with the scope of practice covering various organs and glands. Ever since I chose Biochem as a major, I was interested in metabolism and hormonal pathways. During my medical education, I didn't find any other specialty more attractive than endocrinology.

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
Spending time with my family - my husband and two young children.

What to expect for the course or managment plan of their medical condition.
