I’m a New Jersey native, with an openness and curiosity to experiencing other parts of the country and world. I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Southern California and went to medical school at St. George’s University. I then returned to NJ to complete my general surgery residency training at Monmouth Medical Center.
During my training at Monmouth, I met my role models and mentors who were traditionally trained general surgeons and also practiced vascular surgery. Their encouragement and support coupled with my desire to treat complex disease in challenging patients led me to pursue a vascular surgery fellowship at the University of Arizona. After completion of fellowship, I was once again looking to explore the country and found a home in Las Vegas and an exciting opportunity with a great group of physicians to practice with in Las Vegas Surgical Associates.
