Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
From an early age I was fascinated by science and the ways in which the human body functions. As I continued my medical studies, I became passionate about the field of Rheumatology due to the complexity and nature of its various conditions. Additionally, the ability to provide patient's relief from their chronic symptoms and improve their quality of life with new and existing treatments is incredibly fulfilling. I am committed to being a lifelong learner and healer and I will strive to provide my patients with the best possible care.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago as an avid sports fan and supporter of my hometown Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks and White Sox. In addition to sports, I had a passion for science and medicine which led me to pursue my medical studies abroad in Poland. Afterwards, I returned to the US where I completed my residency and fellowship training at an incredible institution with wonderful mentors. As I begin my new career with WellSpan, I will strive to deliver the best possible care to my patients with compassion and understanding. I do not believe that someone is defined by their disease, but by the changes they are willing to make to live a healthier life.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
When I'm not seeing patients I enjoy hiking through America's national and state parks, traveling internationally, improving my photography skills, and maintaining an active lifestyle by playing sports and exercising daily.
