I was born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania and moved to Arizona to complete my Family Medicine residency.  Following residency, I worked as a hospitalist and then in the outpatient primary care setting for several years.  My current role as a medical educator is enjoyable and rewarding as it allows me to teach and mentor medical students and resident physicians while serving the community.  As part of this residency program, I am excited to help mold Family Medicine physicians and inspire an enthusiasm for Family Medicine in medical students and resident physicians.

Outside of medicine, I enjoy running, traveling, reading, spending time with family, and cheering for Philadelphia sports teams, especially the Villanova Wildcats.
