About me
I am from Minneapolis but fell in love with the Minnesota Northwoods. My interest in emergency medicine began as a leader of backpacking and canoeing trips. I was drawn to the Pacific Northwest for college and earned a BA in International Political Economy. I followed my academic interest in people and places through to a MA in Central Asian International Studies, during which time I spent 18 months in Kyrgyzstan doing field work in a large bazaar built with cargo shipping containers and volunteering with marginalized local youth. I felt my social science professional life had run its course, however, and I volunteered and worked as an EMT and with outdoor youth education in Seattle as I prepared for medical school. I attended UWSOM where I was fortunate to find a research opportunity with Seattle EMS. I also found myself drawn to the ICU. My wife, 2 year old daughter and 2 month old daughter and I are excited to be moving to the Upper Valley. I immediately felt at home during my interview at DHMC and can't wait to join the team!

About me
My first 18 years were divided up between New York, Maryland, and Switzerland. After High School, I headed to UNH where I earned a BS in Environmental Conservation and spent my summers working in the White Mountains. I went west after graduation and spent 8 years in Wyoming working in the social work field, driving buses, and skiing as often as I could. A few years as a firefighter and EMT convinced me to pursue medicine, so I moved up to Montana to take premed classes, further west to Seattle, WA for medical school, and now I’m thrilled to be training in Emergency Medicine back in New Hampshire. My time outside of the hospital is spent with my wife and 3 year old son, often on a bike or skis. I'm excited about practicing medicine in a small town some day and I love the idea of putting my medical skills to work in places where there aren't many resources.

Interests/Hobbies
Outside of the hospital I love spending time with my wife Jill and our dog Zeus. I also enjoy running, crossfit, biking, fishing and hiking/trail running. I'm also a big sports fan and enjoy cheering on my Indianapolis Colts and Villanova Wildcats!
About me
I grew up in Indianapolis, IN, with the exception of three years spent living with my family in Brussels, Belgium. I attended college at Villanova University where I received a B.S. in Chemistry and a minor in French. While at Villanova I also developed an interest in volunteerism and medicine through multiple service experiences within Philadelphia, as well as throughout the United States and globally. After graduating I volunteered through Americorps National as a construction crew leader for Habitat for Humanity in Hickory, NC. I stayed in NC for medical school, attending UNC Chapel Hill, where I became interested in EM. While studying at UNC I spent a summer doing research in Haiti where I became interested in wilderness medicine and global health.

New York Medical College
About me
I grew up on a cattle ranch in Montana where I gained a love for the outdoors and every activity that kept me from being inside. I attended college in Helena, Montana, and after graduating with a B.A. in Biology I went right back to school in Bozeman, Montana, for two more years to become a medical technologist. With those books under my belt I spent two years operating a laboratory in a cancer treatment center and, with the help of my wife, discovered the drive to go to medical school. I suppose that I could blame my wife for that, as she discovered the same drive at the same time. So, off we went and wound up in medical school together in New York. Now we are excited to get back to a place where we can go fishing, camping, skiing, grilling, hiking, and generally getting sunburnt as much as possible.

In my free time I love all things outdoors including skiing, biking, climbing, paddling and sharing these pursuits with my wife and son.
About me
I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, and earned a BA in geology at Dartmouth, where I also met my wife Liz. Between graduation and medical school I wound up in Oregon for a number of years where I worked as a raft guide, ski patroller, paramedic and firefighter. I returned to Florida to attend the University of Florida for medical school and we had a son, Wyeth, my first year. We are all really excited to return to the granite of New Hampshire and the Upper Valley.

Interests/Hobbies
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children, playing outside (sports, hiking, camping, novice fishing, etc.), or lounging about with a good Disney movie or Netflix splurge. My family and I are very excited to be moving to the Upper Valley!
About me
I grew up in Highland, Utah. After graduating from high school, I served as a Mormon missionary in Brasilia, Brazil for two years. I attended Brigham Young University (BYU) for undergrad, where I graduated with a B.S. in biochemistry and met and married my wife Sara. After our time at BYU, we moved to New York to attend medical school at Stony Brook University.

About me
I'm a native of northwest Arkansas, as is my husband. I stayed in Arkansas to attend a small liberal arts college, where I majored in Psychology. After graduation, I received a master's degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, where I eventually enrolled in the MD/PhD program. I started an online business making pillows during graduate school, and my mom now runs our shop full-time from her home. My hubby owns a bicycle repair business and enjoys tinkering in his shop. He built us a tandem mountain bike that we competitively race a few times a year. When I'm not cruising interior design blogs, Ryan and I are enjoying the great outdoors. We love to mountain bike, road bike, hike, camp, climb, and paddle- all of it! We are happiest chilling with our pups Roxie and Olive in the woods, and we can't wait to explore all that New England has to offer!

University of Vermont College of Medicine
About me
I am 31 years old and have spent most of that in Burlington, Vermont. San Diego was the starting point for college, but ultimately I returned home. During that time (early 2000s) I was obsessed with rollerblading; I used to grind rails and jump off roofs. At some point, I switched to more academic pursuits, got a degree in Philosophy and set my sights on medical school. After college, I worked as a car mechanic (practice for my future), lived in Boulder, Colorado to take advantage of snow and wilderness, and camped out for an extended period at the Eastern seat of the Sierra Nevada Mountains—all my version of exploring the world. I started medical school in Vermont in 2012; my wife and I got married during my first year in the living room of our apartment with our dog Sophie in attendance. Anne, my exceptional half—not sure what she saw in me—has been gracious with the stresses of school. Somehow our dogs multiplied to three during school (Sophie, Penny and Lucy—ages 5, 3 and 1). They are generally great companions though at times a bit obtrusive.

About me
I was born and raised in the Bay Area. After getting my biology degree from Stanford, I worked as a high school math and science tutor. I went to medical school at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. As a researcher in medical school, I got to sting people with jellyfish to determine best treatment modalities. When not at the hospital, my fiancée and I like to whitewater kayak. We have gone on expeditions through the Grand Canyon and every western state, so I look forward to exploring rivers in New England. I also rock climb, ski, and enjoy making music. My interests in EM include EMS and wilderness medicine.

University of Oklahoma
About me
I grew up in Oklahoma (birthplace of shopping carts and the parking meter!) and attended the University of Oklahoma for both undergrad and medical school. Volunteering at an inner-city clinic during college exposed me to public health and led me to Johns Hopkins for an MPH in health policy. A late arrival to emergency medicine, I did not proceed directly into residency after med school. Instead, I worked overseas for a year with a health tech startup, ending up in far-flung places like Melbourne's Great Ocean Road, and then returned to Oklahoma to teach high school chemistry and biology while applying to EM. I am thrilled to have matched at DHMC! The training I receive here will prepare me for working internationally at the interface of EM and healthcare policy, particularly in violence prevention and health promotion among pediatric populations. An avowed bibliophile, I spend much of my leisure time reading and writing. When I'm not doing that, I’m swimming. In fact, a key criterion I weighed in choosing EM programs was the quality of nearby pool facilities. Rest assured, Dartmouth has an excellent natatorium.

About me
I grew up in beautiful central Alaska – hiking, camping, skiing and developing a love for the outdoors. I attended college in Bozeman, Montana where I met my husband, Jake. We got married soon after my freshman year and we moved to the Midwest where I finished my degree in Art History at Ohio State. Eventually we found ourselves in the oil fields of West Texas where I worked as a Landman before applying to medical school at Texas Tech in El Paso. I had two children in medical school (crazy, I admit) who keep my life endlessly exciting. I love to travel and so far Morocco and Ireland have been my favorite adventures. In my free time I enjoy cooking/baking, and in fact, would start a bakery if I hadn’t gone to medical school! My medical interests include international/global medicine and wilderness medicine.

About me
I was born outside Chicago but did all my growing up in Austin, Texas. After I got my BS in chemistry I enlisted in the Army and was stationed in the Pacific Northwest. While living there I was introduced to the girl who would later become my wife and when my enlistment was over we moved back to Texas. After 2 years in Austin we moved to San Antonio for medical school. Well they say you can't go home again once you've left, and after 6 years back home we both felt like it was time to go on another adventure. We are both so excited to move to the Upper Valley and experience everything it has to offer. We enjoy the outdoors and are looking forward to hiking, skiing and camping. We love to try new things and I'm thrilled to become a part of DHMC.

Harvard University
Interests/Hobbies
In my free time, some of my favorite activities include running, mountain biking, road biking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, kayaking, and swimming.
About me
I grew up in Laguna Beach, CA, before heading to Boston for undergrad. At Harvard I concentrated in government, with a focus in international health and development, humanitarian relief, and human rights, in addition to studying Spanish and French. After graduation I worked for the Clinton Health Access Initiative in the Dominican Republic, where I directed numerous HIV/AIDS-related projects and managed the logistics of aid shipments to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. It was this experience that led me to pursue a career in medicine, particularly emergency medicine, and thus I returned to CA to complete my pre-med requirements at Scripps College. During medical school at George Washington, I was a member of the Emergency Management Track, and at DHMC I hope to pursue and hopefully combine my interests in wilderness medicine and emergency management.

Colorado College
About me
I was born in Portland, Oregon but spent much of my time across the mountains in Bend, where I alpine ski raced at Mt. Bachelor. I attended Colorado College for undergrad, receiving a B.A. in Biology. After college, I spent two years working in a clinical laboratory and enjoying the beauty of Bozeman, Montana. I also had the opportunity to do two separate medical trips to Haiti, where I realized my interest in medicine. I then attended Creighton University for medical school, splitting my time between their Omaha and Phoenix campuses. In my free time, I have fun doing pretty much anything outside, as long as my wife Jessica and our mutt Lewis can join in. It might be skiing, running, mountain biking, hiking, or just getting lost somewhere. And if I'm lucky, we will finish the day working in the kitchen (or over the fire) while drinking a good beer.

Medical Areas of Interest
Sports medicine and toxicology
About me
I was born and raised in the desert of Tucson, Arizona. After getting a BS at the University of Arizona in biology and business, I moved a couple hours north for med school at UA COM-Phoenix (Go Wildcats!). My fiancé and I couples matched (EM/IM) and we are extremely excited to move to a place with four seasons and lots of water! We have loved visiting her family on Lake Sunapee over the past few years. I am interested in sports medicine and toxicology, but my interests are constantly changing as I’m exposed to new areas within EM. Outside of the hospital, I love to do anything outdoors. You can usually find me on my mountain bike, hiking/trail running, golfing, skiing, kayaking, doing any type of fishing (especially fly fishing!), watching football (Go Packers!), and spending time with family and dogs.

Medical Areas of Interest
Infectious disease and health economics
About me
I grew up and attended college in Madison, WI. I am a huge sports fan, especially for the Wisconsin Badgers. In my free time I enjoy a breadth of activities (none of which I would consider myself especially proficient at) including tennis, golf, skiing, hiking, biking and whatever else people are doing. My interest in emergency medicine derives from the opportunity to help people in a crisis and guide them towards stability. My academic interests include infectious disease and health economics.

In my free time I love to be outdoors—trail running, cycling, hiking, and camping are my current interests.
About me
I grew up in the suburbs of Birmingham, Alabama before crossing the state line to attend the University of Georgia. In college, I studied Biology and Psychology and developed an interest in medicine and non-profit work. Post-college I backpacked from China to Nepal for a year, after which I returned to the great state of Alabama to attend medical school. After a few years of medical school I did a 1-year research training program in Lima, Peru studying HIV prevention strategies in transgender women. I then finished up 4th year of medical school, went on a 6-month mountain bike tour, and completed my MPH.

About me
I grew up in Grand Haven, MI and went to University of Michigan (go blue) before heading west to Colorado. After a season as a ski bum, I found a "real job" in community health promotion. Eventually the trail led to Dartmouth for med school and we are psyched to continue residency here. I love hanging out with my husband Jake and our three-legged dog Wiley. I'm always game for adventure whether it involves finding powder on New England slopes, scouting new swimming holes or getting lost in the woods running or mountain biking. Jake and I helped start Outdoor Mindset, a nonprofit that unites and empowers people with neurological challenges through a common passion for the outdoors (www.outdoormindset.org), and we love hanging out with the local OM crew too.
