An Interesting Fact About YourselfI have color-grapheme synthesia. I see numbers as colors.

More About Me: As an NDD applicant, I was looking for a robust training program in both NDD and Child Neurology. I also knew that I wanted a larger program with a breadth of neurological conditions, and Pittsburgh has no shortage of interesting pathology. As a resident, I have really enjoyed my NDD clinics, where I see a range of developmental delays and neurological conditions that challenge me to expand my horizons on diagnostic considerations and management. From a personal standpoint, my husband (an Anesthesia resident) and I knew that Pittsburgh would be a great town to live in during our training, and we have absolutely loved exploring the colorful and lively neighborhoods of Pittsburgh. 

Likes About UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh:I absolutely loved the people at UPMC Children's Hospital.  The hospital is so beloved by everyone in Pittsburgh and I’m excited to be a part of such a great community!
