Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
When I was in medical school, I was worried because I wasn't sure where I wanted to specialize. Nothing really stood out to me until I was participating in my surgical clinical rotation as a student. I loved it! My day was exciting, and ultimately, I got to help patients with instant gratification through surgery. I loved learning procedures and I enjoyed the wide variety of cases I got to be involved in. I knew I could really enjoy my career for the rest of my life and always be engaged.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I have family scattered throughout the country and my husband and I were looking to move closer to the East coast to be closer to my sister and her family in South Carolina. We ended up visiting the area and loved it. It reminds us a lot of “up north” Michigan, which we frequented a lot while growing up, with the added beauty of mountains.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
When I am not at work I am with my family. We love doing arts and crafts, going to sporting events, and just spending quality time together.
