I am a motivational speaker, an integrative family physician, and an author with a passion for leading people toward improved wellness, self-care, and peace in life. I have written for local magazines; taught end-of-life care to physicians, families, and caregivers; and worked in rural, suburban, and urban settings. I believe that overall wellness is a primary means of disease prevention.
Originally born in India, I moved to Rochester, New York as a child and eventually earned my biology degree, with minors in philosophy and literature, at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I also attended St. George’s University School of Medicine.
