I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Kansas, where I majored in French and Biology, and spent a summer abroad in Strasbourg, France. After graduation, I did basic and clinical research in hepatology before starting medical school at the University of Kansas. I fell in love with both medicine and pediatrics during my third year of medical school, so Med-Peds was the perfect fit for me. In my free time I love binging on Netflix, doing crossword puzzles, and watching Jeopardy (just waiting on my AARP card), and I dream of owning an extra-large, fluffy dog. Right now, my future career interest is in hematology/oncology.
Why I Chose Michigan
I wanted a residency with strong categorical programs, but which also had a unique Med/Peds identity, in a big academic program which could offer a lot to its residents. I knew Michigan fit all those criteria before my interview, but it was the interview day that really convinced me. The residents were warm, engaging, and bright, the program director was inspiring, and the environment was so supportive. Plus getting to live in Ann Arbor is a great bonus!
