Why Iowa

The people here are genuine, and from my interviews and talking with past residents, they truly care about their people, not only professionally but personally as well. To get that at a well-respected hospital system, paired with some great training, made it an easy decision.

Professional/Research Interests

To be an awesome physician! I have research/subspecialty interests in stroke and interventional neurology. To be able to reverse life-altering deficits in a patient undergoing a CVA is pretty amazing.

More About Me

I love to explore new places and travel, try my best to stay active and exercise, read books about pretty much anything, (really bad at) learning a new musical instrument every few years
