Why did you choose the University of Kentucky?

During my interview dinner, I immediately knew UK was the right fit for me. The residents were welcoming and had interests similar to my own. Additionally, UK provided me with the opportunity to return home and serve a community that has given me so much over the years. I know UK will prepare me well for my future as a physician in Kentucky.

What are your hobbies?

 Outside of the hospital, if I am not spending time outdoors with my wife and our two Great Pyrenees, I enjoy visiting bourbon distilleries throughout the state.
