Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? The faculty seemed truly invested in the residents, and the residents seemed truly happy to be here. Now that I'm here, I've seen firsthand how advanced pharmacy practice is - and I can't imagine being a pharmacist without the autonomy that Michigan Medicine allows.

Research Topic: Incidence of vasopressin-associated hyponatremia in the pediatric ICU

Writing Topic: Cetirizine for management of airway secretions in non-intubated pediatric patients

Hobbies outside of pharmacy: Spending time outdoors, working out, and trying new restaurants and recipes!

Favorite Book: Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. Anything written by Malcolm Gladwell.

Favorite Movie: Joker. The Farewell. Parasite.

Favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor: Undecided, but always open to new recs! 

Advice for future residents: Don't be afraid to jump right in, it's the quickest way to learn.
