The most rewarding experience in your career thus far.
Seeing those around me achieve their professional goals and helping them to see they can exceed their own expectations.

Which EPMG value do you identify with most?
I have to say that Fairness is what is most important to me. And by showing, through honesty and transparency, how we must be fair, to be just, to all those we serve and work with is the ideal I hope to aspire to and inspire in others.

What excites you most about the field of emergency medicine or future of healthcare?
We are at the precipice of the golden age of emergency medicine as it sits at the control deck of the healthcare enterprise between health and illness. We are training the future of healthcare specialists, doctors and advanced practice professionals to play the most important role in the healthcare continuum, to deliver on the promise of the best health care at the lowest cost. As acute care specialists, we have the enviable position of protecting the most important healthcare assets. Much like the blind-side, offensive tackle in football, we must steward the vital resources of the whole healthcare system at our fingertips to its most cost effective goals in order to protect it, and keep it safe for future generations.

Describe yourself in two words.
Honest and compassionate.

A book that you would recommend.
I would highly recommend Daniel Pink’s book, Drive, which challenged my prior thinking on managing and motivating people.

The person with the biggest influence in your life.
My parents took a risk in leaving all they knew and had experienced behind and moved a young family of four as new immigrants to this country for the hope of a better future. That desire and willingness to change your current situation for the better has been a part of my make-up since childhood.

Your favorite recording artist or group.
Jimmy Cliff holds a special place for me. His song, “You Can Get It If You Really Want,” was my inspiration during college.

Thank you! Someone will respond to your inquiry shortly.
