What are your particular clinical interests?

I am particularly interested in doing procedures in the clinic because it is rewarding to help resolve an issue for a patient with visible and immediate results. Teaching the patient about the procedure as it is being done is enjoyable, and it also helps build rapport.

Why did you choose Family Medicine?

I chose Family Medicine because it gives me a large number of tools to work with to help improve the health of the local population. Not only that, but I am also able to integrate into the community and get to know my patients through the years.

Why did you choose the Little Rock Family Medicine residency program?

This program has many fine characteristics, including superior didactics, training from a variety of specialists, and a 100% board pass rate for years. There are amazing faculty and staff who are invested in my success. Being that I am from Little Rock, it seems like a perfect fit!

What are your hobbies and interests outside of medicine?

I enjoy just about any sport. I love spending time outside playing basketball and tennis especially. I also have a passion for politics, current events, and public health improvement.
