My Journey

February 23rd, 2013


My journey to specializing in vein care began in 1995 while at Virginia Tech. I began to explore various career paths and wanted to combine my love for working with and helping others with my love of science. A career as a physician assistant seemed a perfect fit given my interests and the current trends in healthcare. In 2003, I graduated from Eastern Virginia Medical School with a Masters of Physician Assistant degree. Upon graduating, I was the first physician assistant hired by the Interventional Radiology team at the University of Virginia hospital. During that time, I specialized in venous access procedures that included various central line placements using ultrasound guidance. I was also exposed to the first generation VNUS Closure procedure and found the new technology fascinating. In 2005, I joined the Interventional Radiology team at MCV Hospital and helped start a vein service for the practice. I immensely enjoyed this aspect of my job and in 2008 joined Richmond Vein Center to dedicate myself fully to the treatment of vein disease. My time spent at Richmond Vein CenterĀ  has been the highlight of my career.
