An Interesting Fact About Yourself: I have lived in four very different states: California, Texas, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

Every move has been such an adventure. 

Why Did You Choose UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: While there were many things I instantly loved about UPMC Children's Hospital, I was most struck by the endless positivity and energy of the PDs, admin staff, and the residents. It also definitely helps that Pittsburgh is a pretty sweet city.
