Why did you join AOAO?

I joined AOAO as a student to help me prepare for a career (hopefully!) in orthopedic surgery. I am hoping to get to know other students and physicians to help make me a better physician and surgeon. I also want to give back to other students who will be coming through, in addition to the orthopedic surgery community as a whole. I am looking forward to attending conferences to stay updated on the latest medical knowledge and getting to know my colleagues.

Short Biography:

I am a third-year medical student at Des Moines University, in Des Moines, IA. I grew up just south of Seattle, WA and attended undergraduate at Utah Valley University in Orem, UT where I majored in Exercise Science. I have been married 7 years and my wife and I have 2 boys, Landon who turns 4 in November, and Russell who is a year and a half. I commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Navy in November 2015 after I was selected for the Navy HPSP scholarship. Some of my hobbies include playing soccer, golf, and riding dirt bikes, and occasionally helping my wife with some of her projects and crafts.
