Biography Information
I am from a small town in Jones County, about 15 minutes away from Hattiesburg. I have known that I wanted to be a doctor since I was 12 years old and I briefly thought my side-job would be an interior designer. I am the first in my family to attend university. I stayed local all through undergrad and medical school and now I'm branching out living 2 hours from home.


Career Interest
I want to specialize and do a neonatology fellowship. I am also interested in Global Health.

Watching Netflix
Traveling
