PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY

An Air Force veteran and Physician Assistant with over two years of clinical experience in Urgent Care, Post-Acute Care, and Otolaryngology, I am currently available to discuss employment opportunity with an organization that shares my values of integrity, ethics, respect, and, above all, humanitarianism.

My favorite thing about belonging to the field of medicine is that I find no greater joy than that which comes from learning and teaching. Medicine is art and science interwoven, with knowledge and evidence that is ever-evolving. If I have learned anything while working alongside my peers on the frontlines during a pandemic, it is that the oath to do no harm is one of the most critically important promises I have ever made in my lifetime.
