Where are you from?

Greenville, SC


I enjoy rock climbing, fly-fishing, and skiing freshly groomed greens. When I'm not outside you can find me watching Clemson football or enjoying the delicacies at Costco food court.

Why did you choose UCDavis EM?

I was able to rotate at UCD as a medical student and was impressed by the enthusiasm, camaraderie, and confidence of the residents and attendings. The program has a great blend of academic and community rotations to help prepare residents for any practice environment. Additionally, as one of the integrated Air Force residents, the unique partnership between UCDavis and the US Air Force was a big draw for me and I have no doubt that my training at UCD will prepare me for active duty deployments and beyond.
