  Personal Interests  

I am married with two children and cherish my time with them. My favorite activities are those that bring smiles to their faces. I enjoy activities outdoors when it’s warm, scuba diving, boating, and gardening. When it’s cold outside, I enjoy crafting, cooking, and baking. I run as a quiet time with God and have a new found passion for photography.

  Clinical Interests  

Trauma and general surgery

  Educational Interests  

I focus to learn something new everyday, no matter how big or small. I want every aspect of my life to be fulfilling including my education. I plan on continuing my education with a doctorate in nursing practice in the future.
