Alma Mater: Princeton University

Professional Interests: Trauma, critical care, public health

Extracurricular Interests: Travel, food, sports, movies, history

Other info: I mostly grew up outside Atlanta so I consider myself a Southerner but I’ve spent a lot of time outside the South. Prior to medical school, I worked for a municipal EMS agency in New Jersey, so they’ve trusted me with several large vehicles with lights and sirens, and I took a year off before medical school working for the administration of a community health center. I’m interested in trauma and surgical critical care, and I’m very interested in the connection between the bedside and larger societal trends. I love traveling to new places, cooking food and eating food of both the high and low-brow variety, and Ivy League basketball - especially my Princeton Tigers.
