Philosophy of Care:
My goal as a physician is to empower my patients to take control of their health and partner with them to attain health goals. I will approach the physician/patient relationship with compassion and understanding and strive to cultivate long-term meaningful relationships. I will endeavor to promote a healthy and active lifestyle that is obtainable to all and is aimed at disease prevention.

What drew you to Yakima or CWFM:
My fiancé and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and desire to stay and raise a family here. It is important to me to be able to practice in a culturally diverse setting (being second generation Filipino-American) and be part of a residency with strongly established community ties. CWFM demonstrated the close-knit family culture and support that I desire to be a part of moving forward.
I have always been an avid reader but since recently taking up running again I have found a new love in podcasts and audiobooks while on the move. Since first grade, basketball has been a passion of mine that has taken me to tournaments all around the country. Now I am always looking for any chance I can get to play in open gyms or recreational leagues. On days off you can find my fiancé and I exploring the outdoors of Yakima with our dog Teddy.
