Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery resident with significant experience treating voiceless patients and an insatiable curiosity
Chapel Hill, US
Amazing things Andrew's made
Not trying to take the easy way out, LiRA is the most incredible thing I’ve built. My life, up to the last 24 months, followed a straight path from high school outside New Orleans, through college at a small, liberal arts Jesuit school in Mobile, AL, up to medical school in Birmingham, AL, to my current Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery residency potion in Chapel Hill, NC. Following my surgical internship, I had 24 glorious, clinically-protected months, sponsored by the NIH, to conduct research. In this experience, I was able to digest the world-wind of hospital experiences from the previous 5 years while reflecting and refining my goals as an MD-innovator. My surgical training quickly brought to light the handicap of voicelessness, and witnessing the emotional toll convinced me of an individual purpose to find relief. I am humbled by the complex, multi-disciplinary team we’ve developed, focused on bringing relief to a patient population I love and am privileged to treat.
