Why did you choose WashU for your residency?
I chose WashU for the incredible faculty and residents, clinical training and research opportunities, high volume and acuity, and the diversity of the patient population. I also appreciated the program’s commitment to the health of not only Barnes’ patients but also the broader St. Louis region. I love living in St. Louis and am thrilled to continue serving and advocating for this community!

What are you looking forward to the most by being a resident here at WashU?
I’m excited to focus on the area of medicine that I love most; learn from talented upper level residents, fellows, and attendings; develop skills as a clinician and surgeon; and get to know my co-residents.

What are your research interests?
Maternal morbidity and mortality, medical education, social determinants of health

Thinking about MFM but still open to anything!
