  • Pathology:  Dermatopathology, soft tissue tumors, paleopathology
  • Personal:  In my free time, I love spending time with friends, playing videogames, and reading. I also very much enjoy being active:  rock climbing, yoga, travelling, outdoor activities and adventures.  I love gardening and have acquired many (maybe too many) houseplants.

Why UAMS?:  I chose UAMS because of the opportunities for personal and professional growth within a well-established program which also provides exposure to a diverse patient population.  UAMS has a strong history of clinical a research experiences coupled with an enriched and enjoyable residency environment.  Faculty, staff, and co-residents work together to create a pleasant and educational atmosphere.
