“Having spent much of my childhood in the doctor’s office for various injuries and ailments, I naturally became fascinated with medicine. That interest only grew as I entered college and pursued preparations for medical school. As I explored various options in the medical field, I was thrilled to discover I could combine my love of sports and activity with what has always seemed to be an innate desire to fix things. I love my job; and the thing that gives me the most joy is seeing patients get back to doing the things the enjoy most in life. It doesn’t matter if it is a high level athlete or the weekend warrior, nothing is better then watching patients return to doing the things they thought they may have to give up.”
