"I love spending my weekends boating, paddleboarding, jogging, and reading a good book. I'm addicted to playing Words With Friends with my family members, and I'm an absolute sucker for corny jokes. Working with Dr. Erbella has made me feel like I've found my calling in life. I love helping to take care of our patients, and I can't think of anything else that has been as rewarding and fulfilling."
