I was born in upstate New York but raised in Orlando, Florida. I attended the University of Central Florida and earned a bachelor's degree in molecular and microbiology. My interest in medicine as a career led me to volunteer at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Children. I later worked in the surgical department of Orlando Health Hospital gaining experience in patient interaction and exposure to the healthcare team. My studies in medicine brought me to the island of Grand Cayman where I attended St. Matthews University School of Medicine. In addition to medicine, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and two new puppies Mia and Zoey. I also enjoy cooking, working with my hands, tropical fish aquariums and nearly anything to do with automobiles. I have a wonderful fiancé Maria who plans to attend physician's assistant school in Knoxville in the near future. I hope to be able to start my own practice one day and serve my community providing excellent, compassionate medical care.
