What is a day at work like?
Exciting and rewarding.

What do you like most about your job?
I like that I have the opportunity to connect with physicians and other healthcare providers and help them find employment at facilities that need their expertise.

Who are your favorite characters in history?
Emperor Menelik II, Abe Lincoln, and FDR

Who/what is your favorite author or book and why?
I grew up on the Harry Potter series. I’ve read each book cover to cover and I’ve seen the movies a million times.

What is your favorite movie, or who is your favorite actor and why?
It’s a toss-up between Christopher Nolan’s Memento, Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, and Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. Classic films from legendary filmmakers. Acting wise, I’d probably go with Denzel Washington, Will Smith, or Leo DiCaprio. Great actors with a vast repertoire of work.

What food do you crave the most?
I’m a sucker for spicy foods. I especially love Indian and Ethiopian cuisines.

If you were to die and come back as a person, place, or thing, what would it be?
I’d come back as some kind of bird. I’ve always wanted to fly.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Moving to Atlanta at 13, perfecting my English, adjusting to the culture fairly quickly, finishing in the top 10% of my High School graduating class, and being accepted to one of the best universities in the state to complete my undergraduate studies.
