Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I was always fascinated by trusting relationships people had with their doctors, and the impact it had on various states of health and well-being of individuals.
What I want my patients to know about me:
Lebanon has been home for our family since 2007, when I came to join the residency program in family medicine. After graduating, I spent a few years in rural South Carolina practicing as a traditional family physician and as a faculty member for the Penn State College of Medicine's family medicine residency program, before joining as the faculty of the WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital's family medicine residency program.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I like to spend time with my family when I am not working. I also like to cook, read, travel, go for walks or listen to music. I have a small group of friends with whom I try to keep in touch.
