About Me

I grew up in Bothell, WA and knew from a young age that I wanted to be a doctor. I began volunteering in the medical field in high school and spent time at Seattle Children’s Hospital and at Camp Prov, a summer camp for children with medical disabilities. I attended college at Washington State University (Go Cougs) and earned degrees in Neuroscience and Spanish Language and Culture. I worked as a human anatomy instructor and later became a scribe in the emergency department. Eventually, I applied to medical school and was delighted to be part of the inaugural class of the Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine. While in medical school, I enjoyed learning all the core materials, but I also took time to learn about point-of-care ultrasound, global health, and to further develop my medical Spanish skills. I became interested in the field of anesthesiology during the spring of my third year and am thrilled to be embarking on the next stage of my medical training as a physician anesthesiologist.

My medical school journey

Completing medical school in Washington has provided several opportunities to learn about the challenges that the population faces in various areas of the state. I spent time providing care in Othello, WA where I was able to utilize my medical Spanish skills and also spent time with the homeless population in Seattle. These experiences will help me to better understand my patients in the future.

Hopes & Aspirations

I hope to be a physician who is always excited to learn new things, share my knowledge with others, and provide personalized and compassionate medical care to all of my patients,” says Street.

I am very excited to be entering the field of anesthesiology and look forward to guiding my patients through their most critical moments of medical and surgical intervention.
