Biography Information
I grew up in Tupelo, Mississippi, and studied philosophy at Emory University in Atlanta. After college I worked a few jobs: paralegal for the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, DC, ticket scanner at a Montana ski resort, farmhand at an organic farm, and mental health tech at an inpatient psychiatric facility, among others. I moved to Jackson for medical school and stayed here for residency. I love goofing off with friends and family. I enjoy games (lawn and board), tennis, time outside in general, traveling, movies, and both serious and silly conversation. I love music--listening at home, seeing it live, or messing around on a bass/mandolin.
