Career Goals: My biggest career goal is to get involved in advocacy within Child Neurology in whatever way/shape/form I can. I would also love to eventually gear my career towards teaching. In terms of areas of interest within neurology, I have no idea what I want to do... so many different things interest me so I'm just going to try to be patient and wait and see!
Hobbies/Interests: Listening to and interpreting movie and television show soundtracks (I am proud to say I am in the top 1% of fans of Ramin Djawadi worldwide on Spotify… it is my greatest accomplishment), watching television (Avatar the Last Airbender is the greatest show of all time,) and singing
Travels/Languages: I was born in England and had a British accent until I was about 7 years old. Does that count as speaking another language? (P.S. I can still put on the accent if that helps answer that question.)
An Interesting Fact About Yourself: I could sing full Disney songs before I could speak in full sentences (which says a lot about me… also this should be a new developmental milestone I think).
More About Me: I have always loved working with kids, and I fell in love with Neurology during college where I majored in neuroscience. So, of course Child Neurology is the perfect specialty for me!
Why Did You Choose UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: First of all, my interview was incredible. Not only is Pittsburgh a beautiful and happy place, but I felt so comfortable with the residents and faculty I met. It was really important for me to find a training program where I could laugh while learning, and the atmosphere here was the perfect combination of upbeat/happy and hardworking. Additionally, I really liked the large size of UPMC Children's Hospital's Child Neurology program. Especially because I'm not sure what I want to go into beyond general neurology, I wanted a lot of exposure to subspecialties. Overall, I was just so impressed by the program not only for its academics but also for the people!
