- When first considered becoming a pediatrician: 3rd year in Medical School
- Why pediatrics: It’s a great setting – kids and the people who work in pediatrics tend to be a lot of fun – they definitely keep my interest and I enjoy the daily work environment
- Favorite part of the workday: I have been at RCAM long enough to have patients I have seen from birth who are now entering college – when I see those kids in the office and talk to their parents, it is an awesome perspective.

- Sports allegiance: University of Kentucky – I enjoy my annual trip with my Dad to Lexington and Rupp Arena.
