Grew up in small town in southern Illinois. Spent a four year vacation some call undergrad in San Diego and migrated back to the Midwest afterwards. I enjoy clinical education in ultrasound, critical care, and resuscitation. I also strive to keep the enjoyment alive in our group while working on shift by focusing on quality and operations on both a hospital and departmental level. Outside of medicine I enjoy food and wine, being active to counter the food and wine, and more than anything spending time with my family.
