Practice philosophy: I strive to meet patients where they are, and provide them with education about their orthopedic issue in order to allow them to make the best decision possible for their own care. I am excited about the ability to deliver Orthopedic Urgent Care in a virtual platform to make orthopedic care more readily available to the community and patients I care for.
What are you passionate about and why? I am passionate about evidence-based practice and implementing the latest research into my practice and the care I provide to each of my patients. I enjoy assisting patients on their healthcare journey and making sure each patient has the tools to make the best decisions for their care.
If you weren't a health care provider, what would you be? I would be an artist.

What is one of the challenges of this career you enjoy? And why? I enjoy being a lifetime learner. As a healthcare provider, I am constantly learning something new each and every day.
What is your personal health goal? One of my personal health goals is to live the healthiest lifestyle I can.
What is the best thing you've done for your health or the best health advice you've received? The best advice I have received is to focus on my progress with my health goals and only measure myself by where I was yesterday.
