How has the AAOS helped you throughout your career?
I recognized AAOS as an amazing resource and platform for orthopaedic knowledge from the beginning of my training. I have attended the Annual Meeting and specialist meetings as well as different sub-specialty courses, and of course review the monthly journal.

As an Associate Orthopaedic Member, which AAOS resources do you use most and why?
The AAOS and associated specialty webinars cover a broad range of topics from clinical to evolving technology such as AI in Orthopaedics and provide a fascinating and very accessible forum for keeping up with developments.

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
Always do the right thing for the patient. It removes any dilemma about what you should do.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself that not many people know?
It’s pretty obvious but not to everyone - I am really Irish!
