I was inspired to go to medical school by the "brain candy" of clinical medical ethics, and I once I got there, I fell in love with the intensity of hospital-based internal medicine. The complex, interconnected medical illnesses that require patients to be hospitalized and the rapid pace of inpatient care allows me to engage deeply with patients at critical points in their lives. I am grateful for the opportunity to help patients through the segment of their care that requires hospitalization.
I enjoy spending time with my family, woodworking, sailing, water skiing, ultimate frisbee, travel, and politics/current events.
I grew up in Penfield, trained in Buffalo, and came "home" to Rochester.
