From the Winter 2015 edition of Vanderbilt Medicine Magazine

“Medicine satisfies the more quantitative ‘left brain’ part of my personality, and helping people gives me immense fulfillment and sense of purpose. One of the necessary parts of being a good doctor is putting your own personal needs behind that of the patients, their families, residents and nurses. To me, that is difficult at times. I’m an emotional person, and music is a place where I can be completely ‘me,’ and honest about how I’m feeling. It’s very therapeutic and has made me a happier, more balanced person.”
