About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

When I was six and read a book about going to the doctor, I realized that that was what I wanted to do. I changed my mind in college for reasons I can't explain and joined the Navy. After 5 years in submarine surveillance, I left the Navy to go to graduate school in computer science. While I enjoyed computed science, I didn't enjoy spending my days with a computer. I didn't think much about it, however, until a friend asked if I was happy. Suddenly I realized I wasn't, and that I needed to go back to my dream of being a doctor. I have never regretted a minute of it!


What I want my patients to know about me:

The Navy taught me a great deal about people from different walks of life, and computer science has proved invaluable since radiation treatment planning is computer intensive. But what really makes the difference is my passion for taking care of people. At my core, I am a caregiver. I am blessed with a marvelous team who put patient care at the forefront.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I love to travel, cook, and hike. Spending time with family and friends is important to me.
