Interests & Tidbits: I am a foodie; I love sports and children (obviously); My hero is my granny; I am a die-hard Cowboys fan; I still have a dream of making it on Sports Center one day
Why St. Francis FMR: I read about the history of the Campbell Ortho clinic, and told by many people of how great the program is and the physicians there. I figured in order to the best one day I needed to be trained by the best. My interview sealed the deal with how warm, inviting, and down to earth everyone was. Lastly, I wanted to join a program where I too could make a mark and leave a legacy, and I feel as though I can do this with this program.
