Hometown: Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa
Undergraduate school attended: Luther College, Decorah, IA

What is your specialty: Dermatology, and pediatric dermatology (fellowship trained)
Why I chose my specialty: Growing up in Tanzania and Botswana in Africa, there were no dermatologists that I knew of therefore I was drawn to the subspecialty. After moving to the US, I also realized there is a paucity of dermatologists of color and I wanted to fill that gap.
Why Medicine: I have always wanted to help people in a profound way, and healing/taking care of humankind in the capacity of a physician was the best way to fulfill my dream.
