I have been lucky to experience many adventures in life. From hiking the mountains of Colorado, to surfing the beaches of Hawaii, to navigating the streets of China, I've been fortunate to travel the world. My wanderlust includes a search for knowledge. I received a BA from The Colorado College, spent years working in Asia, than completed a degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and practiced Acupuncture. I made the decision to combine my Eastern medicine training with Osteopathic medicine and attended A.T. Still University, School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona. A medical school with a unique curriculum, students train at 11 Community Health centers around the country. I trained at Lutheran Family Health Center in Brooklyn, NY. I stayed in NYC for my first year of Family Medicine residency at Columbia University until life brought a new adventure. With my family in Tennessee, I decided to transfer residencies and be near them - to be a true 'family physician'. I plan to work in a Community Health center working with underserved patients and open a Community Acupuncture/Integrative medicine clinic. My favorite pastimes include travelling, yoga, hiking, camping, biking and especially enjoying life with my fiancée and two children!
