Tell us about your current practice:

I’m currently working in Oliver and Penticton and spending the majority of my time working in the General Practitioner in Oncology (GPO) role at the Penticton oncology clinic. The rest of my time is spent doing family practice locums in Oliver. I also spend some time providing surgical assistance in the operating room in Penticton.

Fondest memory with the SMP:

All of the people involved with the SMP made the whole experience fantastic. I especially had a great time with the rest of my group from the class of 2016. There are too many good memories to share.
