I was raised in Maryland, in the suburbs of Washington, DC. I grew up spending time on the Chesapeake Bay and the multitude of rivers that feed into it. I attended college in Maryland as well, where I studied history. Following college, I moved to Boston as an Americorps Member. I betrayed my home state by moving to Virginia for medical school, but I enjoyed the access to waterways and the beaches of coastal Virginia. Utah is a change from the water that I’m used to, but I have fallen in love with the mountains and lakes here.
