What drew me to Gastroenterology: ""I fell in love like you would fall asleep; slowly then all at once."" There is no more perfect quote to describe my relationship with gastroenterology. My passion began when I was enrolled in medical school. At that time, I was trying to determine which field of medicine interested me the most and, easily, gastroenterology was my favorite. Over the course of my residency, I had many interesting GI cases that excited me and drove my passion for medicine. I am grateful to be a part of Guthrie's GI fellowship program and hope to take this passion to help as many people as I can!

What drew me to Gastroenterology: Gastroenterology is a broad and interesting field within internal medicine. We have the ability to help diagnose and manage a wide variety of conditions that affect the entire digestive system. We are also directly involved in the workup and treatment of our patients through the ability to perform endoscopic procedures. The combination of the breadth of GI and the ability to scope makes for a great specialty!

What drew me to Gastroenterology: Hearing from my patients during my residency and hospitalist job, " when is my bleeding going to stop? " stimulated me to learn a career of doing scopes and take care of problems. It is an amazing opportunity to get knowledge of taking care of complicated GI pathology. It is very rewarding to see when patients recover from not eating at all to eating regular diet.

What drew me to Gastroenterology: Gastroenterology is a beautiful blend of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. It allows me to participate in patient care on multiple levels including both cerebral and procedural and blend the worlds of medicine, oncology, infectious disease, endocrinology, and surgery. Gastroenterology is a culmination of multiple organs working together in a system including the stomach, liver, intestines, gallbladder, and pancreas; all relating to one of my favorite things to do, eating!
