I come from a family of healthcare professionals. My grandfather was a neuropsychiatrist, my father is a retired neurosurgeon, my mother worked in the nursing field and my sisters still do. Together, we adhere to the same simple principle of healthcare: Take care of patients as if they were family. My family's commitment to helping those in need is what drove me to become a physician. Today, I am board-certified in thoracic and cardiothoracic surgery, and I have more than 20 years of experience in the operating room.

As medical director of thoracic surgery at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center, I've helped championed a collaborative approach to care; one that brings together a team of specialists to weigh in on every patient's treatment. For a lung cancer patient, that might include collaboration among surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, as well as dietitians, physical therapists and other providers to ensure holistic care.

I am a member of the Society for Thoracic Surgeons, the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, the American College of Surgeons and the Southern Thoracic Surgical Association. These memberships keep me connected to colleagues, as well as the latest research and innovations in my field. I'm particularly excited about identifying and embracing new therapies that accelerate patient recovery and deliver better outcomes. These can range from minimally invasive and robotic surgical techniques to nonsurgical solutions. I've participated alongside oncologists specializing in chemotherapy and radiation therapy in clinical trials of new therapies that can be used before (neoadjuvant) and after (adjuvant) surgery to improve outcomes for lung cancer patients.

Outside of medicine, I serve as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve Medical Corps. I am married and have a son, Jonathan, and a daughter, Emma.
