I come from a small town in rural northwest Ohio. It was my small town family doctor that influenced me to pursue family medicine. After seeing his impact on the community, the scope of his care and the relationships he developed with his patients, I knew a career in family medicine was for me. In medical school, I was involved with the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) at the local, state and national levels, which allowed me to meet several amazing family physicians, which further grew my passion for the field. In medical school, I also had the opportunity to participate in a year-long clerkship where I managed a patient panel in similar roles to how a family medicine intern would. The longitudinal relationships I developed with the patients were some of my most memorable experiences in medical school, and it solidified family medicine for me. My interests within family medicine continue to grow, but my main interests include rural underserved medicine, full-scope family medicine, sports medicine, healthcare delivery and leadership, and family medicine advocacy/policy. Outside of medicine, I am taking advantage of all the outdoor offerings North Carolina provides. I particularly enjoy heading to the mountains for hiking, camping and rafting, or going to the beach to soak up the North Carolina sun and do some kayaking. More locally, I enjoy exploring the food and craft brewery scene as well as checking out all the local festivals and events in the Triangle area.
