What talent do you wish you had? I wish that I had a photographic or idyllic memory. It would have made school much easier.
Who has had the greatest influence on you and why? My obvious answer is my parents (Jack and Barb). They really instilled a solid foundation of values. My parents never missed a game or activity that I was involved in.
What attracted you to Campbell Clinic? The opportunity to join a world-class organization and still be involved in sports medicine, both at the local level and at the premier levels of sports.

What do you most enjoy about your work? I enjoy bonding with patients and simply helping them get back to the activities that they enjoy.
If you could give one piece of advice to young people, what would it be? Do what you love, and then it never seems like work.
