As a native of upstate New York, I studied at Cornell University. During college, I began my world travels with time spent in Tanzania, Costa Rica, East Africa, and Central America. I volunteer work in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina led me to the unique opportunity to study medicine in Cuba.
I was among a small group of Americans offered full scholarships to the Escuela Latino Americana de Medicina (ELAM), an international program for young doctors from all over the world dedicated to providing primary care to the underserved. During my medical training in Cuba, I was involved in several international medical missions including Peru and Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. After graduating from medical school, I volunteered as a physician working in a Liberian hospital as part of the Ebola response.
I have a passion for social justice, international medicine, disaster relief & a personal mission to bring quality health care to the underserved. This residency program is an attractive combination of academic evidence-based medicine & rural full-spectrum training that will allow me to serve communities in need, both in the U.S. and internationally. When not in the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my family, biking, hiking, sailing, skiing, salsa dancing, new adventures & so much more….
