Personal Statement: I have loved my time learning the art of medicine at UNC and am very excited to be able to put that knowledge to work as a primary care physician with the Department of Medicine. I thoroughly enjoy providing patients with comprehensive and patient-centered care. I am very passionate about increasing diversity within medicine, quality improvement and using my love of the arts and theater background for the medical education of student and residents. Outside of work, I love to explore all the wonderful things the Triangle has to offer, hanging out with my dog Trooper (Golden Retriever and German Shepard mix) and endlessly trying to convince my friends to do karaoke with me.
