University of Arizona College of Medicine
Other Interests: 

After growing up in Ithaca, New York, I decided I needed a change of scenery (and weather)! I spent my medical school years here at the University of Arizona and stayed for residency. I was attracted to University of Arizona because it has one of the few and best combined pediatric and emergency medicine programs in the country. The attendings here are amazing, love to teach, and are passionate about advocating for children. When I am not working, I take full advantage of all Tucson has to offer with rock climbing, sojourns to Mt. Lemmon, practicing yoga, and being outside. After residency I plan on continuing to work in pediatric emergency medicine and will get involved in pediatric public health issues.
