How long have you been a member of AAIM?  

Six years.

What is your favorite part of your job? 

Teaching the younger generation of students and residents is quiet humbling and the impact we make in helping them choose their career paths for their success as well as the community is the most rewarding experience of all.

How has the AAIM membership been of value to you and your career?

Every AAIM meeting provided a better insight into the solutions, for the learners’ problems. They have helped me grow professionally and intellectually, and I’ve been implementing one new thing at a time in our IM Residency program each year.

What’s your favorite moment of your career so far?

Understanding the growing pains of administration and at the same time adapting to the changes in our teaching world.
