What are your goals personally, professionally or both?

I aim to expand my medical knowledge in the field of sleep medicine to provide optimal care for my patients.

Most influential mentor you've worked with?

I've had the opportunity to collaborate with some of the nation's leading pulmonary/sleep medicine doctors. For instance, Dr. Roger Seheult, who was awarded the Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa Medical Merit Medal for his contributions to developing a COVID-19 policy, including testing and early treatment, for the Kingdom of Bahrain. He is also the founder of the MedCram YouTube series, which provides valuable resources not only for COVID-19 treatment but also for instruction in pulmonary and sleep medicine for students and physicians worldwide.

Anything else?

I have a passion for sleep medicine and hope to not only expand my knowledge base but also share the expertise I've accumulated over 25 years with the sleep medicine team here at LA CENTA.
