What do you do outside of work?    
I am a devoted cat mom, you can catch me napping with them most of the time. I also enjoy watching sports and finding all the best food in town.

What’s something that most people don’t know about you?

I love ballroom dancing. I look forward to finding a dance studio while in St. Louis.

We know it’s early, but do you have any fellowship plans for after residency?
I am currently torn between MFM or REI!

What advice would you give medical students applying for a residency in OBGYN?

Be kind to yourself and don’t compare yourself to others. It’s so hard to do throughout medical school and The Match process, but it’s so important to allow yourself grace.
