Resident Physician Profiles

Administrative Chief Resident


Undergraduate: Loyola Marymount University - B.S. Biochemistry and B.A. Spanish
Medical Education: Western University of Health Sciences

Hello! My name is Stephanie! I was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, California. After spending all of my life in Southern California, I am so excited and beyond grateful to start this next chapter of my life on the Central Coast. During my time rotating at MRMC as a 4th year medical student, I was drawn by the diverse patient population, the dedication of faculty to resident teaching, and the leadership opportunities that exist in joining a new residency program. My interests include high-risk pregnancies, improving access to reproductive health services, and working for health equity. In my free time I enjoy watching sports (Go Lakers!), attending concerts, traveling and spending time with my family.

Resident Physicians


Undergraduate: The University of Texas at Austin - B.S. Biology
Medical Education: University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth

Hi, I’m Dani! I was born and raised on a ranch in central Texas, but couldn’t be happier that our residency program has brought me to the beautiful Central Coast of California. As a student rotating at Marian, I was drawn to the kindness displayed by staff I encountered and the opportunity to be a part of a newer program. I am passionate about rural healthcare and appreciate the opportunities available here to work with underserved populations. Outside of work, my husband and I enjoy taking our pups on new trails, working on our home, exploring small California towns, trying out new places to eat, and hosting our families at their new favorite vacation spot- the Central Coast!

Medical Education: Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California

Hi, my name is Maya. I was raised in Northern California and went to medical school in Los Angeles. I am very excited to be on the Central Coast and love living here so far. I was drawn to Marian Regional Medical Center by the close-knit OB/GYN team and the fact that is it a community hospital-based program. I am passionate about reproductive justice and am honored to get to work with our diverse patient population here. I can’t wait to develop my skills in such a supportive environment. Outside of residency, I like baking, ballet, traveling, hiking, and spending time with my dog.

Undergraduate:Southern Oregon University - B.S. Biomedical Sciences
Medical School: St. George's University

Hello! My name Chesha! I am originally from Southern Oregon; however my little family and I have spent the last 5 years traveling across the United States. After all our exploring, we could not be happier to call Santa Maria our new home! We have been enjoying the amazing weather, beaches and the beautiful Central Coast. I was drawn to Marian due to the support services supplied to the residents, the enriched learning environment and the welcoming philosophy of the program. These have truly made Marian feel like my second home. My experience here has really driven me to focus on patient care and providing for my community. Outside of residency I enjoy spending time with my husband, two children, family and friends, working out, camping, beach days, family dinners,watching movies and going to Disneyland!

Western University of Health Sciences

Hi guys, I’m Sandy and I’m originally from Zhenjiang, China. After moving around a bunch and finally settling down in California, I’m so glad to call the Central Coast my new home for the next four years! Here at Marian, we care for a very unique and vulnerable patient population. My favorite parts of residency so far are the nurturing learning environment and the compassionate individuals I get to work with. My specific interests are high-risk pregnancies, addressing barriers to care for LGBTQ+ communities, and adolescent gynecology. During my free time, I enjoy traveling, running, rock climbing, attending concerts, and trying new recipes.

Medical School:
University of Iowa

Hi everyone, my name is Deepika. I grew up in the Bay Area and went to medical school in the midwest. I'm super excited to be back in sunny California! My favorite things about our program are the friendships I've made here and how kind and supportive everyone is in caring for our diverse communities. This region of California is definitely a hidden gem - we always have easy access to the beach and never have any traffic! I am most passionate about reproductive justice, family planning, and medical education. Outside of work, I love making all kinds of art - watercolor, acrylics, sewing. I also enjoy gardening, going on hikes, and cooking.

Undergraduate: Amherst College - B.A. Biology
Medical School:
University of Washington

From helping ladies navigate through the wilderness to the physiological changes of their bodies through the ages, Jasmine’s interests are vast and varied. Having lived in multiple former lives prior to residency, she learned how institutional culture can make or break a training experience. She is so glad to be training here where the entire care team- the surgical, L&D, clinic and administrative staff, are all invested in resident growth and really recruit and amplify resident voices to further training programs and goals. But mostly, she is happy to be training at an institution that provides ample opportunities for growth as a physician and surgeon but also supports development as a multidimensional human being. Out of the hospital, she enjoys rock climbing, backpacking, skiing, hydroponic gardening, baking ridiculously intricate but delicious treats and playing with her new sewing machine.

Undergraduate: Central College Pella – B.A. Exercise Science
Medical School: 
University of Iowa

Hi, I'm Andie! I grew up in eastern Iowa, and after doing a rotation on the West Coast in medical school, I knew I wanted to move here. I'm thrilled to be living on the Central Coast now. I am enjoying the comfortable weather, proximity to the beach, and beautiful hikes here, and I'm excited to explore all the national and state parks along the west coast! What drew me to Marian is how close the healthcare team is, our leadership's commitment to meeting our academic goals, and the opportunity to develop cool passions under the mentorship of Dr. Jasmine Rah. My particular healthcare passions include family planning, addressing social determinants of health, expanding access to care, and medical education. In my free time here, I enjoy running and hiking nearby trails, hitting up local restaurants, making crafts on my Cricut, or just hanging out at home with my partner and one-eared cat who was named after the Loop of Henle.

Hi, I'm Arjina! My Armenian family and I immigrated to California over 20 years ago and I have called Southern California my home ever since. Before becoming interested in medicine and OB/GYN specifically, I wanted to become an artist and almost went to study art in Italy!  But, I felt called to the field of OB/GYN because of the opportunity to help women of all ages- from the first menses to a hysterectomy. I am grateful for being able to train at Marian Regional Medical Center, because we are able to provide reproductive health services to a unique and diverse population with varying health disparities. All while receiving phenomenal training from wonderful and caring faculty members! Being in Central California with wonderful co-residents makes it hard to not have fun every day at work. During my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, watching 90's romcom movies, painting and hanging out with my family.

Hi, I’m Hannah! I’m born and raised in southern California. I’m thrilled to continue my training among the scenic beauty and the infamously perfect weather of the Central Coast.  I was drawn to Marian by the opportunity to work with close-knit, supportive faculty in a community hospital setting and to work with a largely underserved, rural patient population.  Outside of the hospital, you can find me at the beach, going for hikes, spending time with friends and family, or binging the latest Netflix show.
