More About Me: I did my graduate training in Pittsburgh and fell in love with the city during this time.  With Pittsburgh and UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh being such a powerful hub for healthcare and academic medicine, I felt I would have all the tools at my disposal to pursue my interests while being backed by world renowned experts.  They really believe in exploring your interest here! Pittsburgh is a great city to come into your own in since it’s metro with a bit of a “Midwest” twist.  You won’t find a better spot for parks, pilsners, or pierogies. 

Why Did You Choose UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: I did my Masters here and the city was just perfect mix of walkability, metropolitan, eclecticism, combined with a huge academic background to prepare me for my child neurology practice.
