Length of time at PUSH:

Before coming to Purdue University in 2005 to work in the Athletic Department and PUSH, I was in private practice in a Sports Medicine Clinic in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I was involved in the care of multiple high school, college, and professional athletes in the central Indiana area. 

Why do you like working at PUSH?

I enjoy seeing the varied muscle and joint problems by our large student population as well as meeting individuals from varied cultures. 

What is your philosophy of care?

I will be honest and straightforward with the evaluations and try to present the multiple treatment options available for a particular problem while at the same time trying to educate the patient about their diagnosis.

What do you like to do when you’re not at PUSH?

Most of my time outside of PUSH is spent in the Athletic Department caring for our 500 or so student athletes.  This includes coverage of our sports teams which entails attendance at multiple events both on and off campus.  I enjoy time exercising and staying physically fit.  I am an avid reader mainly of historical fiction as well as nonfiction.
