After finishing my Orthopaedic Trauma fellowship in 2005, I spent the next five years as the Medical Director for Orthopaedic Trauma at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, a level 2 trauma center in Ann Arbor, MI. Since June 2010, I have directed the Orthopaedic Trauma Division at UVA and have enjoyed the challenge of providing complex fracture care to a wide spectrum of injured patients while working closely with the other trauma services at the hospital. I have had a lifelong interest in teaching and education and am able to fulfill this by interacting daily with our residents and medical students. Personal interests include flying (general aviation), trail running, biking, and spending time with my three boys - all young but growing up fast.
