I was born and raised in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of northern Pakistan. Some of the globally famous highest peaks and longest glaciers of this region attract a large number of mountaineers, and tourists from all over the world. However, this region of Pakistan remained deprived of modern facilities and quality healthcare for a long. I feel privileged to be born into a family headed by a father who was among the few doctors in the town. Therefore, from my childhood, I was deeply inspired by my father who worked after office hours to help those who could not afford to visit hospitals. I have earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Medicine from Fatima Jinnah Medical University.
I am thankful to the Memorial Hospital for providing me with an opportunity to acquire empirical experiences in modern healthcare. During the residency, I aim to improve my clinical knowledge and skills to serve underprivileged society with quality and affordable healthcare. I want to be another inspiring example that others would wish to follow me.
I would be a chef if I was not a doctor. I like to cook different recipes of Pakistani and Indian cuisine. Apart from that I enjoy spending time with my husband and going on long drives to explore nature.
I was born in Houma, LA, and moved to the MS Gulf Coast when I was 9 years old. I attended Harrison Central High School and graduated from William Carey University in 2017 with my Bachelor of Science in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Psychology.
During clinical rotations in medical school, I found it quite difficult to decide what branch of medicine I loved most, which is what eventually guided my heart toward primary care/Internal Medicine. I am also passionate about skin health and cancer prevention, so I hope to eventually practice with an emphasis in dermatology.
My overall goal as a physician is to provide education to patients in an effort to improve their understanding of what is happening to/within their bodies so they can play a role in their healthcare decision-making.
I am absolutely thrilled to be home and have the opportunity to directly serve the community that molded me! I love where I’m from and look forward to providing quality care and preventive measures to keep our community healthy and thriving.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family- especially my little brother, fiancé, 2 pups (Emmie and Blue), and friends. I love the beach, traveling, and softball!
My journey to becoming a physician was shaped by various events rather than a single defining moment. A curiosity about the human body, sparked by a simple question in my childhood, set me on a path of inquiry. Inspired by my parents, both role models, my mother’s selfless work as a dentist for underprivileged families and my father’s encouraging words further fueled my passion.
Choosing Memorial was an obvious choice due to its unique attributes, offering the opportunity to serve diverse and veteran patients. Working alongside experienced physicians in a supportive environment fosters a strong sense of purpose, resilience, and ethical practice. My background in service, leadership, and mental fortitude prepares me for the dynamic environment, merging my passion for medicine and teaching into a fulfilling career.
My medical interests encompass various fields, including academic and hospital medicine, geriatrics, and preventive care. Beyond medicine, I find joy in chess, tennis, exploring cuisines, and watching documentaries. My proficiency in Spanish and Arabic allows me to connect directly with a broader range of patients, emphasizing compassionate care. Excited to bring my commitment to underserved communities and community outreach experience to Gulfport, I eagerly join Memorial with dedication. In my personal life, I cherish running, hiking, sports, podcasts, board games, and cherished moments with family and friends.
I was born in Tennessee and raised in Williamsburg, Kentucky. I received my Bachelor of Science from the University of the Cumberlands and completed both my Master’s and Doctorate degrees at Lincoln Memorial University DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine.
I chose internal medicine because of the variety and complexity of conditions that I’ll have the opportunity to work with. I’m passionate about taking a preventative, holistic, and personalized approach to medical care.
When I’m not working, I enjoy cooking, golf, reading, video games, and watching the Braves, Vols, and Titans play.
The human body is one of nature’s most intricate and exquisite machines. And the idea that even the smallest organism the size of a molecule, or even a millimeter-sized block of an artery, could bring down such a strong and large object never ceased to fascinate me.
The proverb “curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back” is one that I take to heart and has guided most of my life decisions up to this point, from trying new foods to selecting internal medicine as my future career.
In addition to my work at the hospital, I enjoy reading novels, playing video games, and watching movies to get a glimpse into the lives of others. They are exhilarating to me because I get to explore new worlds, delve deeply into incredibly intricate events, and feel a rush when I reach the end.
I am originally from the remote region of Sindh, Pakistan. “Harkaat mein barkat hai” (blessing in movement/striving) has been my guiding mantra, inspiring my remarkable journey from humble beginnings to pursuing education in larger cities.
Fueled by childhood curiosity about the wonders of the human body, my fascination with bones and their role laid the foundation for my calling in medicine. Understanding the human body and emotions drives my passion for healing, fostering empathy and compassion within me.
Life in Gulfport, Mississippi, offers a rich cultural exchange, enabling meaningful connections with diverse people. Beyond patient care, my interest extends to teaching and learning, cherishing the value of knowledge-sharing.
Outside of medicine, I find joy in spending quality time with family, losing myself in novels, enjoying captivating movies, cooking delightful dishes, and exploring the great outdoors.
