Brandon was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. Prior to his medical career, he played in a rock ’n’ roll band (and even toured)! His family physician inspired him to pursue a career in medicine. His interactions as a pharm tech with Med-Peds residents lead him to Med-Peds. He went to medical school at A. T. Still School of Osteopathic Medicine in Az. Brandon is serving as the Webmaster for NMPRA. He is a recipient of the Gary Onady award and a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society. Passions outside of medicine are hockey, rock climbing, awesome music, Moose (his dog), and his lovely wife, Tiffany. Brandon plans to practice Med-Peds in a Community Health Center in Flagstaff, AZ.
Lydia is from Flushing Meadows, Queens, NY. Prior to her career in medicine she was a youth teacher and worked at Legal Aid Society’s Juvenile Rights Division. She went to medical school at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. She was reinforced by her mission trip to Haiti after the earthquake to pursue a career in Med-Peds. Lydia is a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society. She is well known in the Med-Peds family to be the “Asian mom” (always brining a lot of food to our events and caring for babies). Passions outside of medicine are hiking and experiencing the great outdoors, being a doting aunt, and enjoying good food. Lydia plans to practice primary care with an interest in Infectious Disease around the NYC area.
