About me

I am originally from Ethiopia, but I’ve lived in Memphis for the majority of the past sixteen years and now, I call it my home. I graduated with my Masters of Physician Assistant Studies in 2017. I love integrating my knowledge of health with the community to help build strong and healthy families.

I decided to go into medicine because during my graduate studies in public health and research, I realized there is an ongoing need for medical care in my community. I was motivated from that point on to pursue a career in healthcare and join the many professionals who are making a difference in their communities, one patient at a time. 

A good day at work means I receive positive feedback from patients on a management plan that is working well for them. It is very fulfilling to see their satisfaction, increased compliance, and their health indicators showing an overall improvement. 

I want you to know that Sanitas provides a very efficient and centralized location for services that enables patients to visit and have their many needs met. Sanitas strives to maintain the quality of care delivered to each patient by recognizing the individual’s unique health status. This helps to establish the best management plan and patient education geared toward their optimal health and wellness. 

When I take off my coat, I enjoy cooking healthy meals, baking treats for my family, and doing Pilates or taking a walk in a trail park on a good day.
