Why I Chose Medicine

While in college to pursue photojournalism, I became intrigued with the biological sciences and shifted my focus to biomedical imaging. From there it progressed to me working in Ophthalmology performing angiography at a university medical center. There, surrounded by all the educational opportunities via the residency program I was serving my love of medicine was realized. I entered PA school with the hope to return to serve my community.
