I was born in the Midwest but raised in Appalachia and despite any issues that i a may have with the Appalachian South, definitely feel more at home in the mountains than the plains. That said, i'm a restless soul and have spent the last 10 years moving and travelling as much as possible. I'm now living in Chapel Hill, NC with my soon to be wife and my dog, Bella and working on completing medical school. I'm passionate about healthcare equality and innovations in primary care. I like good food, good company, hiking, traveling and a good book.
