I believe in second chances. Largely, that is what addition treatment provides, and I am proud to be part of a similarly minded team that provides these services and, thereby, gives patients second chances in relationships, work, and life.
I enjoy helping patients proactively solve problems, think through and address difficult challenges, and watch them thrive.
Include why you chose to enter the medical field (from what source did your passion for medicine arise?) I came to medicine through a desire to help people address life’s challenges. I find clinical work rewarding on a personal basis. I also work as a researcher. Here, I enjoy analyzing data and generating policy solutions that are designed to help the population better address life’s challenges.
When I’m not treating my patients I enjoy… Spending time with my family, skiing, running, and spending time outdoors.
