  • About Me

    I grew up in Georgia, where I completed my undergrad in Biomedical Engineering and fell in love with the mountains while growing up around the Appalachians. Seeking a change of pace from metro-Atlanta, after college I moved to Utah for “just one year” as a ski instructor. I then spent several years teaching kids to pizza/french fry, became an EMT, and dipped my toe in the water of wilderness medicine by volunteering with Salt Lake County search and rescue. I was then lucky enough to matriculate into medical school here in Utah, where emergency medicine quickly stood out as the best fit for me. I guess luck strikes twice as I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to continue my medical training here for residency!

    Interests & Hobbies

    Anything that allows me to be a small human in beautiful mountains brings me joy, whether it’s skiing, trail running, or mountain biking. I also love attempting to grow a veggie garden, buying too many houseplants, reading, and simple joys like a good cup of coffee or a tasty breakfast burrito. 

    Why Utah?

    Utah is my soul place, and I couldn’t imagine a better place to continue my medical training. The top tier training with incredible ultrasound and med ed opportunities, amazing mentors, kind and welcoming residents who all seemed to be stoked on the same outdoorsy things that drive me, and the unbeatable outdoor access all combined to make it the ideal fit for my career goals and life balance.
