Mentoring Philosophy

I try to meet the mentee where they are at. I feel every individual has a road to medical school, no matter your age or how poor your grades are. Some roads may be tougher then others – sure, but nothing’s impossible.

Communications & Availability

Email & Phone are best.

Usually available after 5pm, unless I’m on call.
