Resident Bio:

I grew up in Massachusetts, except for two years during grade school when I lived in India. I spent a year between my 3rd and 4th years in medical school doing global surgery research in Latin America and got a Master’s degree in clinical research during that year. I met my now husband during intern year and we have a vivacious little dog named Hamilton.

Personal Interests:

Spending time with my husband and dog, being outdoors, yoga, writing, dancing, baking, making guacamole

Clinical Interests:

Abdominal transplant surgery

Professional Activities:

American Society of Transplant Surgeons, Association of Women Surgeons, American College of Surgeons – Resident and Associates Society

Why UW?

I was drawn to UW because of the amazing residents and faculty here, the depth and breadth of clinical experience at the variety of hospitals at which we train and the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

What advice do you have for incoming interns?

No matter where you train, it is about what you make of your experiences. Residency is hard, but with the right friends and mentors, it will also be undoubtedly one of the most enriching experiences of your life.

What do you like best about living in Seattle?

I love being surrounded by water and mountains; the views, even when just driving to and from work, are so beautiful to take in on a daily basis. I also love how dog-friendly this city is!
