1. What is your favorite movie or show?

2. What is your favorite type of music/artist?

I enjoy most genres of music, but I especially like county…. Luke Combs is my favorite!

5. What is your favorite thing about West Virginia?

6. What patients do you like to treat and why are they your favorite?

I enjoy treating most conditions and populations from geriatrics to pediatrics, but I especially love working with athletes. In high school, I severely sprained my ankle and went through several months of physical therapy to return to sport. I instantly fell in love with the profession and knew this is what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. There is something a little extra special about helping an athlete return to sport and overcome the emotional and physical obstacles of an injury.
