Personal Statement

What drove me to a career in medicine was growing up in rural Ohio where children did not have complete access to medical services and providers that they required and deserved. Pediatric rehab medicine was the perfect specialty for me due to its central philosophy of helping every child and family adapt and thrive through a variety of diagnoses but maintaining a focus on optimizing the child's function and experiences.
