    Personal Statement

    Some of my first memories are going with my dad to the hospital because he was a doctor, and that's how I first became interested in medicine. He was the director of the Center on Aging here for over 25 years, so I have great pride in being a second-generation doctor here at the University of Kentucky. Even deeper than that is my love of Kentucky, because I'm an eighth-generation Kentuckian and my children are ninth-generation Kentuckians. So, serving Kentucky in the little area that I can make a difference which is in cancer care, where we have some of the biggest health disparities and highest mortality rates, is really a calling to me.
