Completing my undergraduate studies in the mountains of southern West Virginia and pursuing my
medical degree at Ohio University, which is in the foothills of the Appalachians, really showed me
the beauty of the region. When thinking about where I wanted to train for residency, I definitely
wanted to stay in the region, and when I interviewed in Bristol I knew that this was the place I
wanted to be. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, backpacking and playing golf. I am an extremely
devoted Cleveland sports fan and also enjoy the outdoors a great deal.
