FAVORITE QUOTE:
"The moment we believe that success is determined by an ingrained level of ability as opposed to resilience and hard work, we will be brittle in the face of adversity."
Joshua Waitzkin

FAVORITE PART OF BEING AN ATHLETIC TRAINER IN THE YANKEES ORGANIZATION: 
Seeing a player come back from an injury and be successful on the field - if that doesn't resonate with other Athletic Trainers - why do you do what you do?

FAVORITE WORKOUT:
The Kettle Bell Swing! If I had to choose one training movement for the rest of my life, this is what'd I'd do.

FAVORITE FOOD: 
A thick, grass-fed Ribeye. Grilled. Medium-rare.

FAVORITE RECOVERY TOOL:
Sleep. Around 1/3 of our lives are spent asleep; take control of your sleep habits and sleep environment and optimizing your performance is exponentially easier. 

WHY I'M ATTENDING AN OSTEOPATHIC MEDICAL SCHOOL
I specifically chose Osteopathic Medicine for it's focus on comprehensive patient-wellness and the emphasis of the patient and doctor working as a team.
