Why Orlando Health General Surgery? Orlando is a top tier trauma center. As an aspiring team surgeon this, along with high operative volume, and early autonomy attracted me to this program. The supportive faculty and cohesive resident family sealed the deal. Not to mention the beautiful area, and as a licensed skydiver there’s so many DZ’s to enjoy!

Future career plans: The goal at the moment is trauma and burn surgery. But if I have learned anything in my short time, it’s that life has a way of guiding us to the path we were meant to be on. I have an interest in plastics and surgical oncology, so who knows!!
