  • About Me

    I grew up in Canada playing hockey and fostering my love for the outdoors in Northern Ontario. I figured out late during my undergrad degree that I was interested in medicine, specifically EM. As a result, I barely got into medical school in Michigan and tried to make the most of it. I've hoped to go out west for residency since day 1 and couldn't be more excited about being at the University of Utah. I figured that med school would be a great time to adopt my first dog and haven’t looked back since. I think EM is the most humble specialty and the emergency department is a place where we can make a true difference in our patients’ lives. I’m humbled to join the ranks of my amazing fellow EM colleagues and excited to call Salt Lake home!

    Interests & Hobbies

    I am a big-time hockey player which comes naturally having grown up in the great white North. I also love going “out for a rip,” climbing mountains, hiking with my pup Sierra, backpacking, wakeboarding, dirt biking, and mountain biking. I have a tendency to jump in lakes and appreciate a fine Whiskey from time to time.

    Why Utah?

    During the interview the people here were just incredible. Unreal leadership, support staff, and super happy and down to earth residents. While all EM programs had amazing people, something just felt special about this program. I’ve spent a lot of time adventuring in Utah both during med school and before and couldn’t be happier with the location. I’m excited for this next chapter of my life and look forward to improving my below average skiing skills!
