Physician, Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada
Bio: I was born and raised in Jordan, overseas, where I attended medical school and naturally developed a passion for Pediatric Hematology Oncology while working at King Hussein Cancer Center. I am Board Certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Hematology Oncology. In 2006, I volunteered in three local missions as part of the medical team of “Operation Smile”, an organization that aims at reaching children all over the world with cleft lip/palate deformities. I also participated in designing and conducting workshops on healthy life styles, conflict resolution and team work in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). In addition to English, I speak Arabic fluently. I am passionate about reading, playing basketball and soccer. I also enjoy skateboarding and playing the guitar.
I serve on the board because… I believe that every sick child has the right to make their wish come true.
My wish would be... To play in the National Basketball Association
