How I fell in love with my specialty: I’ve loved medicine from a very young age, and surgery catered to all of my passions. The fast-paced, technically precise nature of this field, coupled with the opportunity to provide immediate solutions to a patient’s chronic medical condition, is very gratifying. I particularly enjoy endocrine surgery for the opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration, the meticulous dissection and precision entailed in these surgeries, along with the favorable outcomes for most of our patients. Finally, the opportunities for clinical research and to make meaningful contributions to our scientific community are both equally rewarding and exciting.     

Three things people may not know about me:

  • I competed in my first triathlon at 6 years old.
  • I played collegiate tennis. 
  • I’m originally from Michigan.
