I grew up in rural southeastern Ohio as a typical "computer nerd," and then moved on to college in Pittsburgh to study Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Although challenging and exciting, I realized that an engineering career would lead to many hours sitting behind a desk, and I wanted to pursue something more directly engaging. Ultimately I landed on medicine. I spent time working as a nursing assistant at a local hospital to confirm that I was comfortable in the medical environment, then jumped head first into training. In 2007 I matriculated into the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and worked for the next four years to learn the intricacies of the human body and decide what medical specialty suited me. Sage advice from elder doctors is to choose a specialty whose members' company you enjoy. I definitely enjoyed family doctors the most; they seemed the most grounded, compassionate, and "real." I completed my Family Medicine residency in 2010 and proceeded to Dyess AFB in Abilene, TX to fulfill my medical school scholarship obligation to the Air Force. Although exceedingly grateful for the opportunity the Air Force scholarship afforded me, and pleasantly surprised that we were stationed in Abilene, we decided to permanently locate in Abilene after my active duty service was repaid. I found a practice of wonderful, Christian, and independently minded physicians to join, and have been gratefully serving the Big Country ever since.
