Hometown: Loris, South Carolina
What made you decide you wanted to be a dentist? I always wanted to do something with healthcare that involved using my hands. Dentistry enabled me to do both, plus add the little bit of artistic ability that I have. Also, my dad is a family physician and I knew I definitely didn’t want those hours (I’d like to keep my hair as long as possible).
Hobbies: Skiing, Fishing, Playing cornhole on the beach (hard to do here), Racquetball, Riding jet skis, Watching Texas Longhorns football and San Antonio Spurs basketball
Favorite Places to eat in SLC: OPH for breakfast, Billy Blanco’s, and Rancheritos for some late night Carne Asada Fries
Interesting fact about me: I whitewater rafted over 200 miles of the Grand Canyon.
Where can you find me outside of school? Skiing anywhere with fresh powder (usually Snowbird), catching up on my sleep and TV shows
What is your favorite ASDA event? Definitely the RUASDA leadership retreat. A great weekend in Park City getting to know my classmates better as well as students from other classes. It was a great way for all of us to relax and bond while playing games and grilling out. Plus, the cabin was big enough that I could barely hear the grizzly bear (Colin) snoring from the floor above!
What Pandora station do you have on while drilling and filling in SIM lab? Always a mix between some good ole Michael Jackson and Country Road Trip. Dr. McCraley recently has me addicted to Vitamin String Quartet
Favorite Dental Procedure: Anything with the Bioclear System!!
Favorite Athlete: The GOAT aka TIM DUNCAN
