I’ve lived a pretty exciting life that’s led me where I am today. I was in the Peace Corp in the Philippines, did a month of my residency in Alaska and I’ve even climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Talk about an adrenaline rush. I think my adventures have prepared me to help my patients by demonstrating that life is better lived when you’re active and doing things you love.
I enjoy living in Jacksonville, surrounded by friendly people. It’s a small town atmosphere in a big city so you get that home town feel with all the fun stuff that comes from city living. When I’m not working, I love to scuba dive when I can.
