I am currently the fellowship program director for Digestive Diseases and I have held this position since 2012. Prior to becoming the fellowship program director I was the associate program director for 3 years. My practice is in general gastroenterology at VACT and I have a special interest in diseases of the small bowel and obscure GI bleeding. In addition to routine endoscopy I read small bowel capsules and do double balloon enteroscopy. My academic interest is in education, obscure GI bleeding and quality improvement.
