Hometown: Tyler, TX

Medical School:  Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine

Why LSU Baton Rouge? LSUBR offers a busy, high-acuity emergency department with ample opportunity to learn and grow into the physician you want to become as we serve and are the receiving center for a very large catchment area in southern Louisiana. Our ICU experience and continuous exposure to pediatrics at our dedicated Children's Hospital really make this program stand out. The biggest impression from my interview day here was the people, though - residents and faculty alike make me feel supported as a learner and as a friend. With the dynamic changes that each COVID surge brought, we got to see our program leadership repeatedly advocate on our behalf.
