Why I chose Pine Rest: I chose Pine Rest after completing an away rotation here in my fourth year. I was blown away by how genuinely caring everyone was (and continues to be) – the doctors, nurses, patient technicians, therapists, and janitorial staff. I knew it fit my learning style and would feel well supported as I expanded my knowledge, growing as a psychiatrist and inevitably made mistakes along the journey.

Other interests: I enjoy hiking and outdoor adventures (fishing, camping), cross-stitching, and barre.

Professional or Clinical Interests: Addiction Psychiatry and Rural Health.
