About Me

An Oakland native, I was born, raised, and currently live in Oakland with my family. The importance of living, raising a family, and working in a diverse community like Oakland, reflects my commitment to advancing the rich legacy that has been cultivated by social justice, empowerment, and fortitude. Guided by the philosophy of Maya Angelou, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better," my personal educational journey as a life long learner has catapulted me into the realm of academia as an educator. Educating patients and students to empower themselves in achieving better health and more knowledge, checks the box of doing the best I can with the tools I have. 


I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of San Francisco in 1997, Masters of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from San Francisco State University in 2003, and a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Loyola University in 2016.
