Acerca de mí
I grew up in Pittsburgh, Penn. and moved to the Atlanta area with my family when I started high school. I have two sisters, one younger and one older, making me the middle child and only boy. I became interested in the field of audiology during my time at University of Georgia, where I received my bachelor's degree in communication sciences and disorders. Many people do not realize the complexity of the ear, which is what made me want to be an audiologist. I attended an accelerated doctorate program in audiology at Indiana University. Throughout my graduate career, I was able to complete rotations in a variety of settings, including a year-long internship here at Kaiser Permanente. I want to use my knowledge to provide high-quality care to our members, as well as educate them, on a part of our bodies that is so vital to communication with friends and family.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
As an audiologist, I am here to help our members hear better and improve their balance issues. This is accomplished through a variety of diagnostic testing and treatment, which will be unique for each patient. I enjoy all aspects of audiology and see pediatrics and adults. I work closely with the ENT Department to provide the best and most appropriate care for our members. It is a team approach, not just with my co-workers, but with my patients as well. It is important for them to be involved in the decision-making process and for them to be able to express their needs.
Cómo vivo bien
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, my dog and my family. Being able to have this support system is crucial for a healthy work-life balance. I also enjoy traveling and technology. I am part of KP Pride, the LGBTQ+ organization here at Kaiser Permanente. I have been told that I always have a smile on my face and I think that is the best way to live!
