Favorite WNY Brewery or Restaurant

So many great restaurants in WNY - can there be just one favorite? I love Kumo, Mangia, and OP Social Tap & Grille.

Favorite WNY Activity

Any place I can run - and even better if it is with friends.

When I’m not reviewing images, you can find me…

Spending time with family, running, and cheering on the Buffalo sports teams (Go Sabres!! Go Bills!!)

I Chose Radiology Because…

Being a technologist revealed my passion for patient care and love for the capacity to use advanced technology to see within the body. During my rotations in school, I gravitated to the therapeutic procedures, and learned to cherish the moments that imaging allowed us to understand what the patient needed. I became determined to establish a greater role in patient care focused on interactions with patients and the ability to help their quality of life. I love collaborating with radiologists, other advanced practice providers, and technologists to support patient needs through their diagnosis to treatment.

To me, experience matters Means...

Accumulating knowledge into a treasure chest that can be drawn on. Experience helps us make decisions and act. To me, experience is greater than knowledge - it lets us continue to problem solve and make decisions.
