Why Otolaryngology?

I have been fascinated with the complexity of the anatomy of the head and neck and the responsibility patients give us with this very important area of themselves since medical school. I am honored to take care of patients in their time of need and is why I continue to do this very important work.  

Why UNC?

UNC has given me the chance to further my career in the field of Advanced Head & Neck Surgical Oncology and is an exceptional place to learn and work. From the time I interviewed to the time I began work, the UNC staff make you feel like family. That is special.
