What I like best about working at Middlesex...

It is the great residents we get the privilege to train in a community hospital with excellent staff and a supportive practice environment.

My favorite thing to do with residents is...

I enjoy performing procedures with residents, from simple office skin procedures to vaginal deliveries in the hospital, and seeing them grow in their procedural ability with time. I also enjoy spending time with and getting to know the residents as people.

What I do for fun...

I'm an avid reader and especially enjoy historical fiction. My favorite book is The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. I also enjoy gardening, cooking, and spending time with family, including vacationing in warm climates.
