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 in communities that appreciate our care.

My favorite thing to do with residents is...

I enjoy performing procedures with residents including simple, office skin procedures to vaginal deliveries in the hospital and seeing them grow in their procedural ability with time.

What I do for fun...

I'm an avid reader and the last book I read was Still Alice by Lisa Genova. I also enjoy spending time with family including vacationing in warm climates. I am currently cultivating an interest in gardening including the growth of grapes.
