"I strive to serve as a mentor and role model for developing professionals, facilitate an interactive learning environment to increase confidence and competence, and to help residents develop higher level critical thinking skills to provide the highest level of care for patients. I most enjoy the collaboration between the University of Utah Orthopedic Center and the Salt Lake City Veterans Affairs Medical Hospital that allows for residents to experience, evaluate, and treat a diverse patient population.
