Biography

Home for me is Seattle, WA. I went to college at Washington State University. Although Medicine was always the intent, I took 2 years off after college to explore other interests, including epigenetics and genetic disease research, sales, teaching and traveling. I went to medical school thereafter at George Washington University in D.C. and discovered an interest in Orthopaedic Surgery. Currently an orthopedic resident at William Beaumont Army Medical Center/Texas Tech University Health Science Center. Areas of interest include Trauma, Joints, Sports and Pathology.
