I am originally from Indiana, PA. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology from Gannon University in Erie, PA. From there, I moved to Greensburg, PA to attend the Seton Hill campus of Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. I moved to Elmira, NY for my clinical rotations and graduated from medical school in 2020. I remained in Elmira for family medicine residency at Arnot Ogden Medical Center, which I completed in 2023 with a concentration in palliative care. I've been interested in palliative and hospice care since medical school and completed several electives during both medical school and residency as I discovered my love for this field of medicine and my desire to pursue fellowship. I am so excited to be in a large academic institution among others passionate about and with significant experience in palliative and hospice care. I have always wanted to move to North Carolina as I love the outdoors and enjoy running and hiking in my free time, and matching into fellowship here at Wake Forest provides me with outstanding opportunities for mentorship and education in a beautiful new place to call home.
