What are your personal interests/hobbies?

Spending time with family and friends, playing games, wine tasting, traveling, spa-ing (yes, we’ve determined it is a thing), scrapbooking, trying new restaurants, and spending time outside (not as intensely as my co-residents… I enjoy walking the dog, drinks on the patio, floating in the pool, playing yard games, outdoor music/margarita/salsa festivals)

What are your professional interests?

Clinical Medicine, Medical Education, US

Why did you choose UA EM?

My interview day had me hooked - beautiful weather, gorgeous mountains, fun and HAPPY residents and welcoming staff.  Because of the longevity and reputation of the program, I knew I would be trained well.  And, because of the people, I knew I would enjoy myself during the process!

Favorite activity in Tucson?

Having people over for dinner, games, and pool time!

What are your non-medical goals during residency?

Be an amazing wife no matter how tired or stressed I am, get to the gym, write/call home often, and start a family
