My Passion for Healthcare

I knew I wanted to be a physician since the 7th grade when my science teacher gave us an assignment on mapping the route a red blood cell took once it left the heart. She drew the heart, lungs, aorta and major organ systems on the floor of our classroom and guided us as we “walked the path” that a red blood cell would as it pumped through the body. This experience was what first ignited my interest in anatomy and it opened my eyes to the possibility of becoming a physician.

My Clinical Focus

The art of educating, has been a passion of mine as I have always enjoyed teaching young surgeons and medical students. My clinical focus is trauma surgery and surgical critical care.

I am dedicated to helping patients when they need it most, diagnosing unique traumatic injury patterns and treating complex critically ill trauma patients.
