A little about myself. . .
I was born in Tulsa, OK but moved from there when I was very young. For the first 12 years of my life, I grew up in Suitland, Maryland until moving to the small town of Waynesburg, PA to start high school with my four siblings and my parents. I then moved to the Midwest to attend college at Washington University in St. Louis. Although the Midwest was nice, I realized I was an East Coast girl at heart. I went to medical school in Philadelphia at Drexel University College of Medicine and loved my time there. I'm excited to be in a new city and explore Baltimore to see what it has to offer.
As of now, I don't know exactly what I want to do after residency and am deciding between general pediatrics or specializing. One reason I wanted to attend the University of Maryland is because I would have the opportunity to explore all of my interests. Also, everyone was so nice and welcoming and I knew this would be a very supportive environment to go through residency training.
Outside of the hospital, I enjoy traveling and trying our new and different restaurants in the city. I love going to musicals and try to catch one whenever possible. Please feel free to email me with any questions!
