Hometown: Odessa-Midland, Texas What I like most about UTHCT: Trees! As someone from the dry, open plains of West Texas, the lush, rolling landscapes of East Texas are a refreshing change. The program is young - especially the new Rural Psychiatry program - and there is an exciting atmosphere of development, collaboration, and new ideas. It seems that there are many opportunities for leadership and personalized training here. Professional Interests: I'm interested in exploring psychiatry's connection with substance use and addiction, as well as with religion and spirituality. I would also like to explore psychotherapy's important role in healthcare in general. Hobbies: Working puzzles, cooking, whistling, wandering around and exploring new places.
