Why did you choose WashU for your residency?
I wanted to train at a residency program that was well known for providing their residents with a top-notch, comprehensive training. A program that also prepared its residents well for potential fellowship opportunities was also important to me. Additionally, I spent a month at WashU during an away rotation and absolutely loved the people I worked with. For all of those reasons, and the fact that my family was ready to return back home to St. Louis, I chose to attend WashU for residency!

What do you like best about being a resident here at WashU?
The people – everyone is so invested in teaching the residents. From attendings to nurses to sonographers, it has been a wonderful place to come to work and learn something new.

What are your career goals/interests?
I am interested in pursuing a fellowship after my residency training, with MFM as the leading option currently. I would also like to practice medicine in an academic setting where I can teach residents/medical students.

What do you do outside of work?    When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family – my wife, Jessie and 7-month-old, Max. You can also find me rooting on the Cardinals and Blues, playing one of my 20 board games, or walking around South City with Jessie and Max.

Fun fact: I married my wife, Jessie, at the beginning of medical school. One of my favorite ways to relax and wind down is cook or watch the food network! I was born in raised in St. Louis. For all you St. Louisans, I attended Oakville High School before moving to Columbia, Missouri.
