PL-3 Resident

Hometown: Johns Creek, GA

College/Medical School: University of Georgia, Medical College of Georgia

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy trail running, cooking with my husband, and playing tennis.  I watched all seasons of the TV show The Office at least 4 times.  

Travels/Languages: I have traveled to Romania, Burundi, Kenya, China, and the Dominican Republic all for various service trips.  I still keep in touch with friends in most of those countries and love the different perspectives and ideas they bring to my world.  

Interesting Fact: This is my first time ever living outside the state of Georgia.  It is also the first time I’ve ever watched hockey, and I’m absolutely a bandwagon fan.  Go PENS!!! 

Likes About UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: Everyone I met on my interview day was smiling.  The residents I spoke with were not only knowledgeable and poised, but also genuinely kind and funny.  I realized at lunch that day that I absolutely wanted to train here.
