Hanging out with my awesome co-residents and just about anything that involves my dog, Louie.

Why did you choose VUMC  Emergency Medicine?

The residents and the faculty I met during my interview days were some of the most fun, down to earth, welcoming people that I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.

What are your interests within Emergency Medicine?

I like just about everything.

What would you be doing if you weren't doing Emergency Medicine?

Maybe anesthesia?

What's your 5-year plan?

Still figuring it out but will definitely have another dog by then.

What's a random fact about you?

I am a big Harry Potter nerd. There, it's out.
