About Me

Biography

As a resident in the Division of Neurology, I maintain clear communication with patients and their families, so they understand what's going on and why. I believe that medical care works best when it puts quality-of-life outcomes front and center, particularly relative to the desires of the patients.

In college, I volunteered with a hospice program in Texas. Seeing the care given to the residents of the program and the difference it made in their quality of life led me to consider medicine. I discovered that I love working with children during medical school after doing a pediatric rotation in Houston. I’d never been happier providing care than when I did so for children. I especially enjoyed the dynamic of parent involvement.

I was honored to present my research about quality-of-life at the Presidential Poster session for the American Geriatric Society 2019 National Conference.

In my free time, I build furniture, work on home improvement projects, go rock climbing and do leatherwork.
