I am a nurse practitioner working in Hematology/Oncology/Bone marrow transplant team for the past eight years. I previously worked in primary care/internal medicine/inpatient psychiatric settings and taught FNP tract as an adjunct instructor at Azusa Pacific University. I am on the medical advisory board and an educator for a few pharmaceutical companies. I enjoy caring for patients, addressing their physical and mental health needs, and being part of the research team at City of Hope. I am a first-year Ph.D. student at UCLA, and I would like to extend my professional interest to conducting research in academic settings to benefit patients I care for.
