Bio

Graduated from UNC-CH School of Medicine in 1999. completed an IM residency at UAB-Birmingham in 2002. Relocated to Miami,FL where I completed a Pulmonary/ Critical Care Medicine Fellowship in 2005. Joined South Dayton Acute Care Consultants in 2005 as an Intensivist. I stayed with the group through 2008. In 2008, I took a job with Patient First Physicians Group in Northern Kentucky where I was able to practice both Pulmonary (inpatient and outpatient) and Critical Care. I remain with this group but under a different name-St Elizabeth Physicians.
