It’s amazing to be only a little more than an hour from some of the best backcountry skiing in the northeast. Favorite Maine activity: Jumping on a boat and exploring any of Casco bay’s many islands. Within an hour or two sailing or kayaking, there are sand beaches, secluded coves, and hiking on uninhabited islands. What did you do before medical school: I was a ski instructor in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Craziest / Best / Worst Job: See above. Why Maine Medical Center: It allows me to practice medicine at a high level referral center while still being close to the activities I love outside of work, to live in a fantastic town, and to work with the best colleagues around.
