Career/Research Interests: I hope to serve as a clinician for adult and pediatric patients with rheumatologic disease and work in academics. My current research involves the evaluation of physical activity monitors as an outcome measure for patients with Juvenile Myositis.

Hobbies/Interests: I love hiking, running, biking, exploring new cuisines and spending time with my friends and family. I ran my first marathon in 10/15 and qualified for Boston but temporarily put that aside for the ultra-marathon of parenthood.  I plan to get back to running soon!

Travels/Languages: I’ve done medical mission work in Ecuador and Peru but hope to travel much more in the future. 

Likes About Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC: Children's Hospital is an excellent center for training and the Pediatric Rheumatology Department is absolutely fantastic. I am blessed with amazing colleagues and work in a supportive environment that encourages and allows each person to be his or her best. Pittsburgh a wonderful place to live and play with plenty of places to explore without the hassle that accompanies major cities.
