Originally from Kentucky, I received my undergraduate degree in Biotechnology at the University of Kentucky before attending St. George’s University for my medical degree. My residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology was at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. After graduating from that program, I was fortunate enough to come to Roswell Park to further my career in the specialty of Gynecologic Oncology. I am currently in my fourth and final year of fellowship and look forward to treating patients of my own on the solid foundation Roswell Park has given me.
Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center continues to prepare me to be an excellent gynecologic oncologist by encouraging my academic pursuits including both basic science and clinical research. I have authored and co-authored many publications with the help of the Institute.
