Born and raised in Elizabeth NJ, I graduated from Rutgers University with honors. My professional training started at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School followed by an Internal Medicine residency at the University of Miami-JMH. From Miami, I traveled west and completed my pulmonary and critical care fellowship at the University of California-San Diego. At UCSD, I was able to participate in NIH funded research projects and spent an additional year as a clinician-scientist studying translational airway biology.
As my job search began, I learned of the The Alaska Hospitalist Group. I found the group to be young, highly motivated, intelligent and successful. I especially appreciated the importance placed on work–life balance and the unique opportunities that Alaska provided.
During my 12 years with the group, I have witnessed impressive growth and maturation of our intensivist program and have been able to participate in multiple rewarding opportunities including ICU medical directorships, nursing and resident education, and outreach telehealth eICU services throughout AK, WA, OR and MT.
When enjoying my time off, I like to hike, travel, stargaze and explore the stunning wildness and beauty of Alaska with my wonderful and loving family.
