Why did you choose to become part of Michigan State University Neurology?

I have known (and been a part of) this wonderful family for many years, before even considering medical school. This family is all about integrity, carrying for others and providing an outstanding educational environment for their residents, fellows and students.


If you were not a doctor, what would you have chosen as a career?

Either a nurse or a research associate
