I grew up in a rural area of Central Kentucky. My twin sister and I went to Eastern Kentucky University for undergrad then on to professional school at the University of Kentucky. She chose law school and I chose a career in medicine. While in medical school, I was introduced to Eastern Kentucky and the Morehead area as a part of the Rural Physician Leadership Program. I was able to earn a Certificate in Health Systems Leadership from MSU during my time here. I went on to complete a General Surgery Residency at the University of Kentucky. I have always enjoyed caring for my patients on an individual level and getting to know them. I knew I always wanted to return to a rural area to provide care to those who need it the most. I am very happy to be a part of the St. Claire surgical team.
