Anything else you’d like to share? 

The challenge of neuroradiology inspires continual learning. I particularly love the detailed and beautiful anatomy of the head and neck and have sought additional training at multiple institutions to understand its associated pathology, including an integrative Neuro-ophthalmology and Orbital Imaging fellowship embedded in my residency training. I continued to pursue my interests in head and neck imaging during fellowship at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and worked closely with surgical, oncologic and radiation oncology colleagues at weekly tumor boards during my time at Penn. I’m excited to bring this skill set and passion to the Pensacola community.
