I’m really glad that I chose NorthBay for my PGY1 residency; it’s a challenging environment filled with a wide breadth of learning experiences. The staff and preceptors are wholly devoted to their practice, which creates the ideal environment for honing clinical skills and developing clinical interests. Everyone I’ve worked with thus far has been amazing, and I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside extraordinary co-residents this residency year.
NorthBay Medical Center is located between my home town of San Jose and UC Davis, where I studied Biochemistry & Molecular Cell Biology and minored in Philosophy. Based on a recommendation from a good friend, I made the serendipitous choice of applying to Creighton University for my pharmacy education. I was born and raised in California my whole life, and decided it was about time for me to experience life outside of the Golden State. I ended up spending three-and-a-half unforgettable years in the Midwest and never regretted a moment of it (I actually miss the snow!). My final year of rotations took me throughout Nebraska, various parts of California, and Florida. In the end I decided to pursue a residency program at a locale that was closer to my roots.
When I am not engaged in the world of pharmacy, I spend most of my free time either geeking out with electronics, experimenting with ideas I pick up from the Food Network, or engrossed in some form of physical activity. My current hobbies include hiking, cycling (mainly road, but I’ve just started getting into mountain biking), gym climbing, snowboarding, and tennis.
