Third Year Fellow

Hometown: North Canton, OH 

College/Medical School: Case Western Reserve University/University of Pittsburgh

Residency: UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh

Career/Research Interests: My interests are in clinical medicine and clinical research as it relates to patient-physician communication and shared decision making. I am especially interested in involving children and adolescents in the process of decision-making.  

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy running, yoga, reading for pleasure, being outdoors and listening/singing to good music. I am very close with my family as well and try to maximize time with them when possible.

S.O./Married/Kids/Pets: My husband, Mark, and I were just married in the fall of 2016. We don’t have any pets or children currently, but I am a proud mother of multiple plants and we dream of having a pug someday.

Travel/Languages: I am proficient in English and at one point, was fluent in French. I have traveled throughout the US and to a few other countries. My husband and I are working on a tour of the National Parks.

Likes About UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: When I came to Pittsburgh 8 years ago, I had no idea I’d still be here to complete my fellowship. I love that Pittsburgh is a mix of old and new, culture and technology, architecture and outdoors. Children's Hospital has provided me with fantastic mentors and advocates, friendships, and opportunities for personal and career development.
