Personal Interests

I enjoy spending time with my family, including coaching my children's soccer teams. We thoroughly enjoy exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains – hiking, camping, mountain biking, paddle boarding. As a family, we are trying to learn German!

Advice for Students

Student Health is a wonderful place to receive medical care.  I utilized the Elson Student Health Center as an undergraduate student and had very positive experiences.  This is a good time in life to empower yourself as a health care consumer; Elson Student Health is a safe place to develop the skills to navigate the health care system.
