About Me

I grew up in a small town of 600 people, where my father owned a family music store. In my free time, I enjoy boating, playing the drums and the piano and watching and playing sports, in particular hockey. My interest in hockey lead to a desire to pursue training as an orthopedic surgeon. But it was my real-world experiences along the way which have truly molded my approach to patient care.

I’ve learned that while two X-rays may look the same, no two people are the same. My goal is to work with the patient, so that we as a team can figure out the best treatment plan.

I have always enjoyed being a core member in the communities where I have resided. Giving back to the community will always be a focus of mine and my family’s.
