I grew up in Michigan, traveling through NC on my way to visit my grandfather in Florida. I fell in love with these NC Mountains. Since early high school I wanted to be a doctor. My dream came true in 2002. I also developed a desire to work in underserved regions and have helped establish a free Pediatric clinic in Detroit, as well as serving in serval medical missions in Africa. I love the people of WNC and enjoy working in Bryson City, helping keep children healthy and safe. I enjoy precepting NP/Pas/and medical students.
