She went on to pursue her medical training at University of California, San Francisco, where she completed an Internal Medicine residency in June 2018. She trained specifically in Primary Care and is dedicated to partnering with people in working towards their individual health goals over time. She has particular experience managing high blood pressure, high cholesterol, pre-diabetes and diabetes, COPD, heart disease and liver disease, including cirrhosis.
