An Interesting Fact About Yourself: I became a certified pirate watcher when I lived on a ship in Africa for a year.

Why Did You Choose UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: When I came for my interview, as cliché as it is, I just loved all the people I met and knew I would feel at home here. Also, the advocacy training and opportunities through CORE and PALS are unique and I know will prepare me for the kind of career I want. My husband’s family (including our adorable niece and nephew) are all here so that was an added bonus!
