Rural health is a longstanding passion of mine. The impact of implementing real-world solutions to improve outcomes in these settings was first demonstrated to me as a Peace Corps Volunteer and ultimately led to my pursuit of medicine. I completed neurology/vascular neurology subspecialty training at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale where I remain as supplemental faculty. I am an Associate Professor at West Virginia University, a predominantly rural state. Effective systems of care are critical to resilient rural health models. Therefore, I conduct research, mentor trainees, and serve on multiple boards that emphasize care optimization and innovative approaches to reach our patients. Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
