Personal Information


Cincinnati, Ohio

University of Cincinnati (undergrad and medical school)


Cooking, reading, running, spending time with family and friends and exploring Pittsburgh.


Mostly just Europe − studied abroad in Newcastle, England and during that time and on other trips, I've had the opportunity to travel around England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Austria, and Germany. I definitely plan to go back and visit more. No current foreign language proficiency, though.


Like About Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC

Everyone is so friendly − as colleagues, offering to help and as peers, planning social activities. It's also a great place to train, with a focus on learning both in lecture and hands-on. There seems to be a strong support system for residents without compromising the excellent patient care.
