I'm the current administration fellow for the Department of Emergency Medicine. My professional interests include creating a more efficient and effective emergency department, as well as national and state health policy, advocacy and leadership, and physician wellness.
I completed my undergraduate studies at Johns Hopkins University while playing four years of football. I then went to St. George's University for both my MPH and MD degrees. Following medical school, I completed my emergency medicine residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and was elected as a chief resident in my final year of residency.
During my residency, I became interested in advocacy, physician leadership, and administration. I was elected as the national secretary-treasurer for the Resident-Student Association of the American Academy of Emergency Physicians, as well as elected the resident representative for the Mississippi State Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians. I was also one of two chief residents among all specialties to co-chair the Chief Resident Committee and represented residents on multiple hospital administration committees.
I currently am an at-large board member for the Young Physician Section of the American Academy of Emergency Physicians.
In my spare time, I enjoy fitness, sports, outdoor activities, and community events.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
