I was born and raised in Nepal, a small country in southern Asia surrounded by the Himalayan mountains.
After graduating high school, I moved to California to pursue higher education. I started my nursing career as a Licensed Vocational Nurse. After graduating as a Registered Nurse, I acquired experience in a fast-paced emergency department and Surgical Intensive Care Unit at a busy level II trauma center, stroke center, STEMI center, and transplant center. I was also a member of the Critical Care Committee. In this role, I assisted in various research projects to promote patient and staff safety while at the same time implementing evidence-based practices to improve patient care. I had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented, knowledgeable, and compassionate Nurse Practitioners. The vast knowledge these NPs possess and their ability to make swift life-saving decisions has motivated me to become an NP. I received my doctorate in Nursing Practice and Family Nurse Practitioner degree from the University of San Diego.
As a Nurse Practitioner, I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work for Loma Linda University Medical Center on the Transplant Surgery team. My passion for providing preventative care grew as I joined Flying Samaritans, a missionary health organization serving the community of El Hongo, Mexico, and Kenya Relief in Migori, Kenya. I am passionate about serving people of all ages. My doctoral research emphasizes preventing obesity in primary care settings.
