I am Kurdish - born and raised in the northern part of Iraq (also known as Kurdistan), in the beautiful city of Sulaymaniah. I came to America when I was 12, and lived in Wisconsin. I attended the University of Oshkosh WI where I received my Bachelors in Microbiology, with a minor in chemistry and language. I then attended Ross Medical University, and completed my clinical rotations in Chicago.
I have been fortunate enough to visit the great State of Tennessee numerous times, since my aunt lives in Nashville. I absolutely love the eastern side of Tennessee and have fallen in love with the area, the scenery, the people, and most of all with ETSU and the Johnson City Family Residency Program.
During my free time, you'll find me either working on my car, or driving around in it. Besides cars, I like staying active and playing sports such as tennis, soccer, and football. I also love fishing, camping, traveling, and cooking.
