 When asked, “What inspires you?”

” To be the best version of myself that I can possibly be. There is always opportunity for improvement and to push yourself both personally and professionally. I think a commitment to life-long learning is essential for that growth and change as part of that process. Additionally, I find it inspiring that with healthcare there is an enormous amount of opportunity to positively affect other people’s lives, whether it is with patients or coworkers. Helping friends, family, and neighbors heal is a pretty powerful notion, and I am excited to work in an industry, and at an institution, where that is possible.”
