What brought you to Premier Health?

I completed my residency at Grandview Medical Center. My family and I were already settled in the area and I loved everything about Miami Valley Emergency Specialists and Premier Health. Choosing to work here was easy.

Why did you choose medicine as a career?

I always felt a higher calling to help others growing up. Science and biology came naturally, so a transition into medicine allowed me to fulfill that calling.

My parents always pushed me to do my best. Their mentorship and support kept me inspired through my journey to become a physician.

What is your favorite animal, and why?
