I grew up in Michigan and studied Chemical Engineering at Michigan State University. Initially, I thought I would do R&D research for a chemical company, but after graduate school I discovered my love for advancing medical technology and seeing its implementation at the bedside. I stumbled across interventional radiology my first year of medical school and found it to be the perfect fit. As an IR/DR resident, I look forward to developing a career when I can combine my love for patient care with my interests in engineering.
