Why did you choose the University of Kentucky?

I chose the University of Kentucky as I felt like this city, this training grounds, and these people would turn me into the best version of myself both personally and professionally. I am very thankful to have the opportunity to train alongside the brightest of minds from all walks of life that stretch the boundaries of what is possible for both professional and personal patient care. I saw a glimpse of the culture and community on my interview day, and have been blown away ever since I arrived here at the authenticity of the people and the opportunity to shape the learning experience into what is needed for my own career path. Originally from South Carolina, I was looking for a place that was welcoming and afforded a seamless transition to a new city with ease, and this has been every bit of that. As my grandfather is originally from a coal mining family in Pikeville, I knew from an early age that I wanted to come back to the state of Kentucky and give back to a community that gave my family so much. It has been a special opportunity to serve the state of Kentucky and learn alongside both patients, families, and faculty as I sharpen my skills to become the best clinician I can be.

What do you like about your program?

I chose this program because I knew that it would be a rigorous outpatient and inpatient training experience, but in the midst of that, I would be surrounded by faculty who cared and classmates that valued both my learning experience and mental health. Residency is hard, but knowing that you are coming to a place and a culture that values growth and development and also wants you to reach your own individual career goals, makes it all worth it. I desire to pursue a career in primary care sports medicine and was looking for a residency curriculum that gave me the opportunity to enhance my clinical skillset in sports, afforded research and travel opportunities to national conferences, and allowed me to further develop my passion for point of care ultrasound. We are surrounded by a great group of faculty that dedicates both time, resources, and a plethora of opportunities to pursue event coverage at the high school, college, and professional level, so if this is something you are interested in, this would be the perfect place for you.

What are your hobbies?

My wife and I are big foodies! We would to checkout any of the new restaurants in town with a couple of our favorites being Eppings, Corto Lima, Pearls, Mirror Twin, and The Lost Palm. Keenland is a tradition unlike any other. One of the highlights of our April and October months without question. I also love to clear my head and take walks at the Arboretum next to the football stadium on a pretty summer/fall day. Thursday night concerts at Manchester Music Hall is a hidden gem. When not walking or at a concert, the gorge is only a short drive away with plenty of great trails to checkout, and a college town means there is always something to do sporting event wise.
