Favorite Ski Trail: The bunny hill
Favorite Beach (doesn’t have to be in Maine): To be honest, after spending 22+ years in Chicago, most beaches excite me
Celebrity I most resemble: Never been told I resemble one. I do want to take this as an opportunity to mention that I have one, possibly several, doppelgangers out in the world, as I frequently get “have I met you before?” when travelling to places where I certainly haven’t met people before.
If I weren’t a doctor I would be: A park ranger. I would love to rock that forest green uniform.
Personal Goals: Be a supportive spouse, learn how to be a competent physician, remember to say ‘yes’ whenever possible, and FINALLY learn how to brew beer
Favorite Place in Maine: Looking forward to finding it, think I’ll start searching in Acadia.
Why MMC: Honestly, it ended up being an easy decision for me- I clicked with the people, the program provides excellent training, and Portland will be an awesome city to live in and explore!
