Bio
Why I belong...
I was drawn to the healthcare field at an early age. I studied audiology and speech pathology before attending medical school and training in internal medicine. As a hospitalist, I see patients at a concerning time in their life. For most, I enjoy seeing them improve and leave the hospital feeling better! For others, the end of life is closer. I find that guiding a patient and their family through that transition can also be rewarding. I enjoy working in the hospital setting and as a part of the Salem Clinic team! The Salem Clinic primary care physicians work closely with me and the other hospitalists to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible.

For life...
I grew up in Denver, Colorado, where I camped and hiked in my backyard, the Rocky Mountains. Present day, I have three fantastic children and a wonderful wife, who I cherish! I spend most of my free time with them. We enjoy hiking, reading, watching movies and playing piano.
