While in college to pursue photojournalism, I became intrigued with the biological sciences and shifted my focus to biomedical imaging. From there it progressed to me working in Ophthalmology performing angiography at a university medical center. There, surrounded by all the educational opportunities via the residency program I was serving my love of medicine was realized. I entered PA school with the hope to return to serve my community.
I am a fixer. Give me your problem and I will help you fix it! I really enjoy educating my patients on prevention strategies for illness, or how to make them feel better during an illness. I also love a variety of hands on work; thus love urgent care.
