Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program? Why Pittsburgh?
I was extremely impressed by the residency program at UPMC Shadyside. I knew it was a place where I would be challenged and supported as I continue to develop into a family medicine physician. The residents and faculty were helpful and passionate about the program and family medicine in general. Additionally, the quality of the outpatient and pediatrics training was very appealing to me.

After completing medical school in Philadelphia, I knew I wanted to explore a new city for residency. Everyone I know from Pittsburgh thinks it's the greatest city in the world so now it's my turn to find out why. I'm most excited about the food scene and urban park space.

What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
My main goal during residency is to continue learning how to treat a broad range of medical conditions in a patient population varied in age, socioeconomic status, and within the context of their families and communities. This will prepare me to develop meaningful relationships with patients from a variety of backgrounds and provide me with invaluable training toward my goal of promoting programming and policy change to improve health outcomes for underserved populations.

Do you have any special interests outside of the residency program?
I love being outdoors and enjoy activities such as hiking, biking, and practicing yoga. I'm also passionate about good cheese and craft beers!
