I provide individualized care, with the highest level of integrity, to each patient affected by voice, swallowing, and airway disorders. I bring cutting edge knowledge and techniques to patient care. Most importantly, I approach patient care with a team philosophy that incorporates the patient, family, and other healthcare practitioners into the decision making process.

In my spare time, I enjoy long distance running, mountaineering, music, and eating.
