"I practice medicine because my journey in life has destined me to do so. After serving my country proudly within the ranks of the United States Army, I wanted to continue selflessly to serve my community. Practicing medicine empowers me to be the change that I want to see in the world. Lastly, I feel that my purpose in life is to help facilitate positive change."
