Undergraduate: Penn State University

Medical School: Loyola University Chicago

Residency: University of Michigan

Fellowship: University of New Mexico


I practice emergency medicine in the UNM hospital system, am faculty in both the EMS and Wilderness Medicine fellowships at UNM, and am an instructor in the UNM EMS Academy. After finishing residency at the University of Michigan, I completed a 2-year EMS fellowship at UNM, with a focus on rural EMS, wilderness medicine, and prehospital care in austere environments. During my fellowship, I completed the UNM Diploma in Mountain Medicine (DiMM) program. I now co-direct the Austere and Mountain Medicine programs at the EMS Academy, and serve the New Mexico Search and Rescue community as medical director for both Cibola Search & Rescue and the UNM Reach & Treat Team. I provide EMS medical direction for Cochiti Fire & EMS and Sandoval County Fire Department. I instruct UNM residents on point-of-care ultrasound, and also teach a prehospital ultrasound course for EMS providers.
