I have always been excited and passionate about the human body and its healing properties. Before discovering the Osteopathic profession I was pre-Physical Therapy and about to start Chiropractic school. I feel Osteopathic Medicine and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation will allow me to fulfill my lifelong goal of helping others maximize their functional abilities regardless of their cognitive or physical limits.

When not immersed in studies I love being active. I enjoy golf, basketball, mountain biking, hiking, and all types of water and snow sports. I am also interested in photography and wine making, followed by tasting, of course.
