Why did you choose Wash U for residency?
I chose WashU for its superb clinical training and research, commitment to women’s health, and the congeniality of the resident cohort. After visiting WashU, I felt like I could acquire all the skills I need to become the best OB/GYN at WashU, and I was inspired by the opportunity to work with the unique and diverse population that WashU serves.

What do you like best about being a resident at WashU?
I love my co-residents! They are incredible, brilliant, and committed to women’s health and diversity and inclusion. They challenge me everyday to be the best physician I can be, and I’m so grateful to have found an incredible group of people to train with.

What do you do outside of work?
Outside of work, you can find me spending time with my co-residents and exploring all of the St. Louis sites and parks. For fun, I enjoy hiking and listening to true crime podcasts and Beyonce.
