About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I was an athletic trainer for several years. I wanted to expand my knowledge and be able to provide care to a larger demographic of patients. I felt becoming a Physician Assistant would allow my to accomplish those goals.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I would hope that patients feel they have someone that is willing to listening to their concerns and take the time to explain their condition and options.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I am an avid Formula 1 race fan and enjoy traveling.
