Where are you from?

Flagstaff, AZ

What are your personal interests/hobbies?

Growing up in Flagstaff near to the forest and trails inspired a love for the outdoors. Whether it’s trail running, mountain biking, climbing, back packing, hiking, dirt biking, or camping I feel invigorated when I am outside doing just about anything. A close second is spending time with my two dogs, Willow and Renny. They never fail to make me smile or laugh and their greetings when I get home are second to none.  I also enjoy yoga, dabbling in cooking and baking, can almost always be found jamming to some kind of music, and nothing beats a good cup of coffee in the morning.

What are your professional interests?

Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Wilderness Medicine, Rural Medicine

Why did you choose UA EM?

The amazing Peds/EM group!!! The entire department is filled with fantastic, fun-loving people to work with and the residents are absolutely stellar and feel like a family.  I love the diverse patient population of Tucson. Tucson also has such great access to the outdoors, a lively, funky culture, and all the street tacos you could ever dream of! The passion of this program and place inspires me to become the best physician I can be.

What's your ideal vacation?

Playing somewhere high in the mountains from dawn to dusk. Perhaps a return trip to New Zealand!

What are your non-medical goals during residency?

Run a marathon and do another mountain bike race! Backpack in the Grand Canyon and get back to the Weminuche Wilderness in Colorado. Make lifelong friendships and travel to visit friends around the country. Keep the stoke high and continue to find balance!
