An Interesting Fact About Yourself: I have lived on all three U.S. coasts. Also, in high school, I performed the Star Spangled Banner in front of 1000 people.

Why Did You Choose UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: Fell in love with the East coast charm of the city. I loved the people at CHP. I felt like the leadership and residents were very genuine and would support all of my personal and professional goals. I also felt like the size and population of the hospital would provide me with fantastic training, especially in primary care. Lastly, I interviewed on the mustache November award day and I have never laughed so hard in my life
