Interventional Pain Management
I only decided to become a physician in my second year of undergrad It was then that I realized that my life's direction had to have a meaning.
A true calling rather than just earning a living. After much soul searching, it came to me that the best thing I could do with my life was to help others.
This, combined with my strong interest in biology and "figuring out how things tick" led me to medicine
I then completed my undergrad with a B S in Biology and a minor in Philosophy at the University of Minnesota, Duluth (Go Bulldogs!)
I next attended medical school at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (Go Gophers!) on the health professions scholarship program (H P S P through the U S Navy, and earned my M D degree.
The next 4 years were spent in active Military service, most of it on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (Go NAVY!) It was there that I met an Anesthesiologist who would change the course of my career I decided to pursue Anesthesiology.
After my military service, I began Anesthesiology Residency training at the University of Michigan (Go BLUE!) I would become an ABA Board Certified Anesthesiologist and would later go on to Fellowship Training in Interventional Pain Management'
After becoming ABA Board Certified in Interventional Pain Management, I accepted a teaching position at the University of Michigan as a Clinical Lecturer I served in that capacity for 2 more years before leaving to pursue private practice It was there that I eventually transitioned to full-time pain management.
I now look forward to continuing to serve my community as a proud member of IRISE! Go IRISE!
