Graduate of Medical University of South Carolina
Prior to moving to Chapel Hill for residency, I spent all my life as a South Carolinian. I was born and raised in Spartanburg, a medium-sized town in upstate SC. I then attended Clemson University, receiving my undergraduate degree in Production Studies in Performing Arts with a minor in History. After college, I moved to Charleston, SC for medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina.
It was during my years at Clemson that I made the decision to become a physician. I originally wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a surgeon. However, my experiences in medical school made me gravitate towards family medicine: a patient centered, continuity based field requiring a broad scope of knowledge of several areas of medicine and different patient populations.
I have always had a strong passion for music; starting music lessons at a young age. I play the drums, violin, and guitar and have played in multiple orchestras, quartets, and bands throughout my life. One of my favorite things is performing music in front of a live crowd. Being from the South, I am a rabid college football fan. You can see me every Friday and Saturday in the fall decked out in Clemson orange supporting my Tigers. I also enjoy trips to the mountains and beach and spend as much quality time with my family and friends as possible.
