Originally from South Carolina, I moved to New Jersey in 2010 and attended Pace University’s Physician Assistant Program in Manhattan, graduating in 2012. I began my career as a practicing PA in Orthopedic-Spine Surgery and gained a wealth of knowledge in the area of orthopedics as well as experience in the operating room. I had the honor of serving on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic where I first assisted on several major corrective scoliosis cases. I changed specialties in 2014 focusing on hip and knee replacements as well as lower extremity trauma surgery. I remained active in the educational arena by lecturing at several Physician Assistant Programs, including our very own Seton Hall PA program. I decided to transition to full time education in 2020 while continuing my per diem work in orthopedic surgery. I am excited to share my knowledge and experience with students and strive to bridge the gap between didactic education and clinical practice. My areas of expertise include orthopedics, surgical skills, diagnostics, and clinical applications.
