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.
