Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine: I felt that I had a calling to pursue a career in family medicine, specifically to come back to serve in my hometown. My goals have been to help to support community health programs, and assist in educating and treating patients of various backgrounds.
What patients should expect when they come to an appointment with me: A preventative and collaborative approach to caring for the patient as a whole. I most enjoy the relationships and insight I have gained from knowing my patients as people over the years.
What I do when I’m not seeing patients: Home improvement activities, reading, going to the beach, and cooking
