Career Highlights

Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of working in various medical specialties, including intensive care, pediatrics, public health, and emergency medicine.


In addition to these experiences, I also dedicated a year to specializing in sexual health medicine in London. One of the most memorable moments in my journey was helping a woman and her partner navigate a challenging pregnancy. Despite the unexpected twists during the birth process, the connection we had formed prior to that moment made it a true honor to be there and assist in welcoming their son into the world.

These diverse experiences have enriched my medical path and underscored the importance of compassionate care.
