Bio: tell us about yourself
I’m someone who really likes the basic science applications in medicine, that’s what draws me to pathology. I got a lot out of the UGA psychology program because of its heavy emphasis on research methods and statistics. Basic science is fascinating to me, but I really love working with people, so it’s hard for me to not think about a primary care specialty as well. I was a late bloomer to the idea that medicine is for me, I spent most of my life thinking I would be a researcher or lab tech, but the more I worked on patient samples the more I thought about the actual patients and wanting to help them. In my free time, I am a cat dad and love to ride my bicycle and make bread (kneading dough is a great stress relief!).
