Why Radiology?
Radiology gives you the unique opportunity to find and see a ton of interesting pathology, as well as answer difficult questions for our clinicians. It’s really fulfilling to figure out what’s going on with a patient, and by doing so, help our clinicians take great care of our patients!

Why UF?
When you’re from western New York like me, you root for bad sports teams and you grow to hate winter. That originally lead me to look in the south, but I was drawn to UF because of the incredibly friendly attendings and residents, great collegiality in the department, and the excellent training!

I love listening to music, seeing concerts, and long-distance running. I’m also a huge sports fan, and I love rooting for disappointing teams like the New York Mets, New York Knicks, and Buffalo Bills. But most of all, Go Gators!

Future Plans: Body Imaging Fellowship, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL
