Where are you from?

I grew up in eastern Washington, then went to the best state ever (Montana), and then spent the last 4 years in the scenic Midwest.

What are your personal interests/hobbies?

Hiking, camping, reading, climbing, going to get into mountain biking while I'm here (I think it's a requirement for EM residents...), traveling, fishing, yoga, dancing. 

What are your professional interests?

PEM, international medicine, wilderness med, sports med, preventative medicine, and outpatient peds surprisingly for someone who likes EM... 

Why did you choose UA EM?

I absolutely loved Tucson when I interviewed here. The people, the atmosphere, the laid-back feel, the dedication to teaching/education from the staff was SUPER genuine, and literally everyone was talking about climbing, hiking, mountain biking, camping, being outdoors. I knew it was the place for me when the peds chief was talking about climbing in the morning before heading to work - super stoked to be here!

What's your ideal vacation?

Well I met someone this last year who has climbed the tallest mountain in every state, which I am totally copying because I think it is freaking sweet! So working towards the goal of visiting a new place and climbing to the tallest place in that state - 0 down, 50 to go (well maybe I've been to the top of Iowa or Kansas or something, but I wasn't aware at the time so I guess that doesn't count...).

What are your non-medical goals during residency?

Becoming a mountain biker, climbing outside once a month, possibly buying a home, paying off certain loans; heck, maybe even finding a spouse if it works out that way.
