Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?
While not in a special track or focus, I have a deep interest in the underserved population and the pediatrics population.
Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program? Why Pittsburgh?
The atmosphere and the supportive academic staff made me decide to choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine. The environment is conducive to learning, growth, and development throughout the residency. I fell in love with Pittsburgh because it is not only a beautiful city but medically advanced. It is rich in cuisine, arts and culture with a balance of city life and a close-knit community feel. A wonderful place to jumpstart a career and begin a family.
What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
My goal is to be a holistic family medicine practitioner and a competent and compassionate physician to my patients. I want to be confident in performing procedures and dealing with different types of patient populations. I am also interested in helping the community as I have always been involved in community outreach work, especially dealing with the populations that have little to no resources.
Since you began residency training, what are your clinical interests?
I developed an interest in Women’s Health and empowering their decision making for their own health.
Do you have any specials interests outside of the residency?
I have always loved cooking and traveling. Recently, I started exploring close by parks and trail and enjoy hiking trails here in Pittsburgh.
