What do you look forward to most about the ASHNR Annual Meeting? Enjoying amazing educational content while simultaneously catching up with great friends and colleagues.

Do you have a particular ASHNR member or mentor that you admire (and why)? Dr. Hugh Curtin – he is an encyclopedic resource for of all things H&N, while also incredibly affable, always approachable, and tirelessly supportive of his colleagues. Also, many thanks to Dr. Smoker for introducing me to the world of H&N and the ASHNR.

What was your childhood dream job? Ski bum / ski patroller

What is one thing people might be surprised to know about you? My music library is full of hippie jambands. I’m in my happy place when reading a stack of H&N cases while rocking to a funky Phish show from the late 90’s or grooving to the 1970’s Grateful Dead.
