I grew up in Dublin, Ohio, and went to The Ohio State University for my undergraduate degree, where I majored in Biomedical Science. I was involved in research involving excitation-contraction pathways in heart failure. I graduated from medical school at the University of Toledo thereafter. I trained at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson in New Brunswick, NJ, for my internal medicine residency. During residency, I developed interests in pulmonary disease and procedures. My current interests include pleural disease and medical relief work.

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree at Cornell University, majoring in Biomedical Engineering. Afterwards, I attended Touro College of Osteophathic Medicine, which is focused on supporting the Harlem community. During Internal Medicine residency at Northwell Health - Lenox Hill Hospital, I served as HIV Track Chief Resident. I developed the curriculum and maintained a continuity panel of HIV patients. Becoming interested in Pulmonology, I researched high flow nasal cannula and its role as treatment of hypoxic respiratory failure. My goal is to remain in NYC where I can continue serving the diverse and growing population.
