Prior to Fellowship:
Not new to NC, I previously worked at East Carolina Brody School of Medicine in the Dept. of Emergency Medicine as an Asst. Professor of Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Medicine. From there I moved to Chattanooga TN, attending in both Medical Intensive Care Unit and more recentlyin the Cardiovascular Surgery ICU at Erlanger Hospital. After several years of ICU and EM work, I choose to explore an interest in Hospice and Palliative Medicine. I chose to return to the beautiful state of NC to explore both professionally and personally with my wife and two children.
