Why did you choose Wash U for residency?
Gut feeling on interview day – everyone was just so nice and welcoming and I knew this was a place where I could learn and grow in a supportive environment

What are you looking forward to the most by being a resident here at WashU?
Learning to be an excellent Ob/Gyn while bonding with my awesome co-residents. I’m excited to get to know St. Louis as well!

Currently have any fellowship plans for after residency?
Not sure yet, but so far interested in MFM or Family Planning.
