I am a Sports Medicine physician and am the head team physician for Division I Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and for Collinsville High School in Collinsville, IL. I have served as team physician for Saint Louis University and the Gateway Grizzlies minor league baseball team. I earned my medical degree from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL where I also completed a combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics residency. I completed a sports medicine fellowship at San Jose-O’Connor Hospital in California. As a former athlete myself, I thoroughly enjoy being on the sidelines and assisting both the traditional and non-traditional athlete get back in the game and be healthy in doing so. I love to travel and spend time with my friends, family and dog Sumo.
