I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and attended Miami University in Oxford, OH for my undergraduate training. My medical education was completed at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. During my medical school training I completed a one-year anatomic pathologic fellowship focusing on genitourinary malignancies and autopsy. I then completed my general surgery and urology residency training at the University of Kentucky. My research interests during medical school and residency primarily focused on pathophysiologic mechanisms of therapeutic resistance of metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer to anti-androgen therapy.
I then completed a Society of Urologic Oncology fellowship at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. My research interests currently focus on identifying patient- and tumor-specific characteristics predictive of therapeutic response to intravesical and systemic therapy for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder and upper tracts.
I believe each patient’s cancer journey is incredibly personal and unique, and treatment plans need to be similarly personalized. Understanding a patient’s background, family situation, and priorities are the first step to aligning our treatment goals. I take great pride in the care we provide patients of the Commonwealth at the University of Kentucky.
