Buffalo Business First has been hosting the annual 40 Under 40 Awards since 1992. That’s 1,240 young professionals honored over the years.
Now it’s time to learn more about the 2022 class. Each Friday leading up to the Nov. 10 awards luncheon, we will introduce you to 10 of this year’s honorees in random order.
All of them are younger than age 40, of course, and successful in their professions and involved in their communities.
This year’s winners will be celebrated at a luncheon Nov. 10 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center sponsored by Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union and University at Buffalo School of Management.

Proudest professional accomplishment: When I was named chief medical officer at Community Health Centers of Buffalo in 2020. It was a long-term professional goal of mine to obtain such a position, and to do it at an organization I fell in love with during residency was the ultimate accomplishment.
Best advice you have received: Say yes to everything early on.
Professional goal in next five years: We are launching three very exciting ventures at CHCB that include a new geriatric program, Department of Prevention and Wellness and Arts as Healing. My goal is to expand each department and program to those within our community and beyond.
Bucket list: Drive an RV across the country
Favorite WNY location: Canalside
One thing people don’t know about you: I was a college cheerleader and one time during a college football game I did 22 back handsprings in a row. That was such a long long time ago!
