About Me
I was born in Indiana, but my family relocated to Ann Arbor when I was 3 years old and I consider AA my hometown. I came up through Ann Arbor Public Schools and was given my first informal tutoring role in Mrs. Miller’s 5th-grade class, which began my love of teaching.  I eventually found myself studying cell biology and German at the University of Michigan (becoming the “blue sheep” in my Purdue-filled family). After graduation, I attended OUWB for medical school which provided many opportunities to work in and research medical education. The vision of a career filled with diverse patients and passionate people drew me to Med-Peds, and, much less importantly, it allowed me to continue living my life in 4-year blocks.

Some of my non-medical goals include running all of the world marathon majors with my husband, learning to garden, and keeping a journal consistently. 

Why I Chose Michigan?
The UM physicians who cared for me and my family members growing up inspired me to pursue medicine and made me want to train here. Michigan is a place where I knew I would be challenged and encouraged as I began my career, and that opportunities to explore nearly any aspect of internal medicine or pediatrics would be endless. Also, Ann Arbor continues to overwhelm me with its loveliness, even after 20+ years.
