I have served on Faculty at UNC since 2001 in Otolaryngology after completing medical school and residency at UNC. I serve as Chief of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Associate Pediatric Surgeon-in-Chief, Surgical Director of the North Carolina Children's Airway Center (which I helped found with the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology), and serve on the Committee to Review Appointments and Promotions to Associate Professor with Tenure. I previously served on the School of Medicine Admissions Committee for 18 years and teach and mentor undergraduates, medical students, residents, fellows, and graduate students in clinical and research roles.
I have been educated and trained in the UNC system, completing my undergraduate education at North Carolina State University and subsequently medical school and residency training at UNC. I have dedicated my professional career to improving the lives and health of the children of North Carolina both as a physician/scientist and through professional service. I seek to build a stronger University and Medical School by investing in and building our greatest asset - our strong human infrastructure. I have served throughout the School of Medicine and collaborate broadly across the University, working to strengthen our common bonds and further our mission together. I would be honored to serve as a member of the Faculty Council to continue in this service.
