I am originally from Decatur, graduating from Eisenhower High school. After receiving my Associates Degree in Nursing from Richland Community College, I have worked as a Registered nurse for 10 years before going on to earn my Bachelor of Science and Master's in Advance Practice Nursing from Spring Arbor University. Working as an Operating Room Nurse, I have come to know Doctor's Sams and Sullivan quite well over the past few years. Their passion for orthopedics and helping others in this community is undeniable. I choose orthopedics because I too, am passionate about improving the musculoskeletal health of patients in the Decatur and surrounding areas. My areas of interest include sports medicine, pediatric orthopedics, and primary care. When I am not providing care to my patients, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children. I also enjoy playing my violin for my local church.
