I have been in Graduate Medical Education since December 2014 and have loved almost every minute of it. And the minutes I didn’t love, I have learned from!

Recruiting season is my favorite part of the year, as I enjoy meeting applicants and hearing their individual stories. Hopefully, I will hear your story soon! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about the USD SSOM Psychiatry Residency Program.
