As a physician, my academic journey has shown me the deeply transformative power of education, including the doors that it can open to stability and empowerment. I’m cycling for Project TEMBO because I recognize the critical role that education plays in lifting girls and women out of poverty, granting their autonomy and enabling them to contribute in new ways to their communities. By participating in the TEMBO 500, my objective is to further the cause of access to education as a fundamental right for all. By sponsoring me, you will be helping the girls of Longido achieve their potential, breaking the cycle of poverty and building a brighter, more equitable future.

I’m a staff emergency physician at Vancouver General Hospital  exploring the intersection between medicine, epidemiology, and technology. I’m currently completing a Master’s of Science in Epidemiology at the University of Ottawa and, as part of my thesis work, I’m investigating the use of Artificial Intelligence for clinical decision support in Canadian emergency departments. As a recent transplant to Vancouver from Ottawa, I’m enjoying exploring the west coast terrain in my free time, including road biking the greater Vancouver area and mountain biking through trails in North Shore.
