Biography:
My desire to understand the health experiences of community members stemmed from my early childhood, in which I lived in Section 8 housing in Shoreline. My Section 8 community was largely comprised of immigrant families that faced numerous barriers as they pursued health, legal, educational, and professional opportunities. My experiences since then have come together to leave me very engaged with the subject of social equity and the pursuit of providing everyone their rightful human access to quality health care.

ICHS truly is a melting pot and every day is a learning experience when I’m able to engage and with co-workers and patients from all parts of the world! My greatest strengths include my passion and profound respect for multicultural experiences and diversity.

When I joined in the Fall of 2016, I knew I wanted to be a part of ICHS because it is known as a pioneer in providing culturally appropriate and language services for the immigrant and refugee populations.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
