I chose to do my undergraduate studies in biology and chemistry at St. Joseph’s College in Maine to pursue my interest in the medical field. After learning more about Physician Assistants and their roles as practitioners, I began my path towards a PA program. I worked at MGH in clinical research in neuro-oncology before attending MCPHS in Manchester, NH for my PA studies.
Since graduating in 2010, I worked for Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Orthopaedics where my responsibilities were based in the OR and in the hospital. I left the inpatient arena for a short time from 2012 – 2015 to gain experience in outpatient Orthopaedics at New England Orthopaedics in Peabody, MA as well as to be closer to home.
I was born and raised in Lynn, MA and am a current resident. I am fortunate to have joined Excel Orthopaedics in 2015 where I am able to remain close to my family and friends as well as return to my interest in orthopaedic surgery and inpatient orthopaedics.
