Why did you choose VUMC? Coming to Vanderbilt was an easy decision. After interviewing all over the country at top ranked programs I finally found a program that wasn’t “ok” with being where they were, figuratively speaking. In VUMC I found a program that is advancing, growing and recruiting some of the best physicians in the country. Vanderbilt’s progressive vision of PM&R and its future is second to none and I was tremendously excited by the opportunity to be a part of a program that is shaping the future of PM&R. 

Outside Interests: My family is my life, my wife is my best friend, and spending time with them is my all time favorite thing, regardless of the setting. I also love teaching and I’m a little obsessed with Ultrasound. (And maybe some fly fishing and basketball)
