    Resident Program
    Resident Graduation Year
    Sherman, IL
    When I'm not working I enjoy spending my time going on runs, spending time with my family and friends, testing out my amateur barista skills, and trying out new dinner recipes.
    I also enjoy my annual camping trips to national parks in the U.S. with my best friend from college. 
    Why they chose SIU

    The faculty at SIU is why I decided to pursue Otolaryngology. They are incredibly supportive and encourage you to try new skills outside of your comfort zone. Both faculty and residents in the department are all wonderful educators and are excited to teach. Between the family and educational environment at SIU, I knew I would be able to succeed!
