About Me

I grew up in Weston, Florida (a suburb of Ft. Lauderdale) before attending the University of Florida for undergrad where I majored in Economics. From there, I went to the University of South Florida in Tampa for medical school.

Medical Areas of Interest

Undecided within orthopaedics.

Interests & Hobbies

All things outdoors in Utah (running, hiking, biking, skiing), traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Why Utah?

University of Utah stood out to me during the virtual interview process as an outstanding orthopaedic training program. Having all subspecialties within Salt Lake City, and seemingly endless access to mentorship and research opportunities, I knew this would be a great fit for me. Additionally, I was impressed by the interactions amongst residents and between residents and faculty – this was certainly a culture in which I felt I could succeed and become a great orthopaedic surgeon. Finally, its hard to beat all the outdoor acitivites here!
