An Interesting Fact About Yourself: I never started driving until I got to Pittsburgh (which is a confusing place to learn!)

More About Me: I am originally from California and went to medical school in New York. I was first attracted to Pittsburgh because of the people I met during my residency interview, and to this day they are extremely supportive and kind. Despite this being the smallest city I have lived, I have really grown to love the city and the ease of living. 

Why Did You Choose Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: I chose UPMC Children’s because the minute I walked in on my interview day, the program leadership was extremely welcoming and honestly having a great time! And the residents were the same, and I felt very welcomed and at home.
