Candidate Statement

In the last few years I have become significantly more involved in AAEM, more so since becoming ABEM certified. The mission of AAEM aligns with many of my own personal beliefs in emergency care.

I have had the opportunity to travel with AAEM to various countries to participate in international education conferences in Argentina, Costa Rica and Portugal, which has significantly ignited a commitment for EM education projects. As result I have joined the International Committee as well as the International Conference Committee and look forward to becoming more involved in these conversations.

As an EM Trauma Critical Care trained physician, it has been an honor to revitalize the EMCCM section of AAEM. Creating the bylaws and coordinating a sustainable venue for AAEM members interested in critical care has been a true privilege. As President-Elect of the AAEM EM CCM section, I look forward to fostering dialogue within AAEM and coordinating with other EM-CCM section groups.

AAEM has truly become a home for my emergency medicine interests. Being a part of the board allows me to grow my commitment on the national and international level of emergency medicine care.

Thank you for your consideration.
