Biography

I was born and raised in Gardnerville, Nevada. I grew up playing ice hockey, snowboarding, hiking, and camping. After high school, I attended Elmira College in Elmira, New York with the goal of playing college ice hockey; however, I decided to devote most of my energy to ROTC and applying to medical school. My desire to combine medicine and the military led me to USU where I completed my MD in 2016. I then moved to San Antonio, Texas to complete a residency in anesthesiology. I am now back at USU serving at the anesthesiology assistant clerkship director.
