Biography

Q: What led you to work in orthopedics?

Answer: I grew up in Western Pennsylvania and joined the Marines after high school. I have always enjoyed sports and being active. Orthopedics just seemed like a natural fit. In 2000, I graduated from Alderson-Broadus College as a physician assistant. That same year I began my healthcare career as a medical officer in the Army Reserves.

Q: What drew you to begin practicing in the Franklin County area?

Answer: I’ve lived in the region since 2000 and had heard great things about Summit Health.

Q: What would you say is a common misconception about physician assistants?

Answer: Many times people confuse the PA profession as a stepping-stone to becoming a physician, instead of what it is; a licensed medical provider that works with a designated physician to improve access to patient care. We’re here to help the physician and provide better patient access to the physician.

Q: What are you most looking forward to about working in Franklin County?

Answer: I love the culture of Franklin County and I’m really looking forward to being a part of growing the Sports Medicine program along with Dr. Brad Conner.

Q: What hobbies or interests do you enjoy outside of your career?

Answer: I’m a big sports fan and I play ice hockey. I also enjoy gardening and hunting and working on anything that involves a motor and power tools. I don’t think I’ve ever met a hobby that I didn’t like.
