UBMD Internal Medicine


Internal Medicine - Pediatrics


Professional Summary:

I was born and raised in southern Pennsylvania and after attending medical school at Penn State University, I relocated to Buffalo for residency in Combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. After graduation, I remained in academics at UB. I have interests in transitional care medicine, particularly in medical management of behavioral issues in patients with developmental disabilities. I also have interests in resident and student education, especially in developing simulation curriculum. I am the clerkship director for third year medicine and the associate program director for the med/peds residency program. Helping to take care of underserved populations is also important to me. I volunteer regularly with the Lighthouse Free Clinic, which is run by UB medical students and serve as a faculty advisor and medical director for the clinic. Outside of medicine, I enjoy travel, making wine as well as enjoying good wine, and spending time with friends and families.
