I grew up outside of Boston and moved a whopping 60 miles west for undergrad at Amherst College where I discovered a love for geology (class outside what could be better?!) and running long distances. Geology took me to the mountain west, Iceland, and, eventually, New Zealand where I spent a year and a half after college doing paleoclimatology research and picking up as many new outdoor hobbies as possible. An existential crisis later, I found myself back in Massachusetts for med school. During my fourth year, I realized that emergency medicine is about as close to geology as medicine gets, and I am so excited I've joined the team in Utah!
Medical Areas of Interest
Pediatric emergency medicine, climate and health.
Interests & Hobbies
Climbing, running, skiing, skating, and all other forms of type II fun. When I remember to sit still, I love to read, bake, eat chocolate, and search for the best cup of coffee.
During my away rotation in Utah, I was blown away by how truly happy the residents seemed. Combine that with a palpable sense of community, stellar teaching, a strong pediatric program, proximity to solid rock, and the ability to run straight uphill from the hospital -- I was sold.
