  • Medicine as a field is constantly evolving, and it requires a curiosity and drive to pursue knowledge. Continued learning, in my mind, plays a very important role in improving patient outcomes as well as their experience. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunities that I have had. I love the Medical Field, and the drive that exists to improve all facets for patients.
