Stuff I do for fun

My Goldendoodle Moses is my life! You’ve never met a happier or fluffier boy.

Fitness has always been a huge part of my life. I’m in the gym at least 4 days a week!

I live to travel! I try and take one major trip each year. I’ve been to South America, Asia, and Europe.

I got into modeling when I was in college and always have had so much fun doing it!

The Plan for World Domination.

Just kidding about the world domination. But I do have big plans for the future. After establishing my own successful medical practice, I want to help doctors make their dream of starting their own practice a reality.

So many doctors have a vision of how they want to practice medicine that will never come true because of limiting beliefs and pressure around them. My dream is to bring these doctors together and educate them on how to execute on their vision.
