Since graduating residency in 2012, I have worked full time as an Internal Medicine Hospitalist.  I enjoy the challenge of caring for patients admitted to the hospital with a variety of illnesses, and strive to provide top notch best evidenced-based medicine.

My academic interests include teaching residents and medical students procedures, and optimizing the efficiency and safety of the discharge process.
