About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

Since I was in grade school, I knew I wanted to work in the medical field. I was always fascinated by the human body and how it functions. I also have a passion for helping others and wanted to make a difference through medicine. In my life, I have spent a lot of time in hospitals/offices with my dad who overcame cancer and a chronic liver condition resulting in organ transplant. This personal experience further inspired me further to help and heal others. "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others" —Gandhi

What I want my patients to know about me:

I want to be an advocate for you and your health. I aspire to treat every patient with respect and take the time to listen to all of your questions and concerns.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking, and traveling. My goal is to visit all 50 states and to see all of the US national parks. I also enjoy spending time outdoors, such as hiking and fishing. I am an avid Pittsburgh fan—Go Steelers and Penguins! I have one "child" at home: he is orange, has fur and a tail, and responds to the name Jack.
