  • About Me

    I’m a born and raised Utah native, and as such, reserve the right to hold strong opinions about whether Cool Whip belongs on Green Jell-O and if Funeral Potatoes can be served outside of a funeral. I attended the University of Utah for my undergraduate degree and then went to the University of Colorado for medical school.

    Medical Areas of Interest

    My interests include expanding access to urologic care for underserved patients primarily in rural areas. From a surgical standpoint, I like all aspects of urology and can’t choose one area that I like more than others.

    Interests & Hobbies

    Fishing, skiing, eating, relaxing with family and friends, and traveling to new places.

    Why Utah?

    When I was applying for residency, I had a keen eye on the University of Utah. Having lived here previously, I knew I would be happy moving back. Utah really has everything I need and want other than an ocean (though we do have the Great Salt Lake). I knew very little about the residency program though. My residency application cycle was greatly disrupted by COVID, and we weren’t allowed to do any away rotations. Because of this, I really relied on gathering information from alternative sources. Nearly everyone I talked to had nothing but good things to say about the University of Utah. I took a chance and applied here and was quickly reassured during the interview that Utah really would be a great place to train. I was impressed by the caliber of residents they accept, the diversity of training and subspecialty representation they have, and the opportunity to rotate at multiple different specialty hospitals including a cancer center, pediatric hospital, and a VA. I love living in Utah, and I’m very lucky that I matched into such an amazing residency program here.
