Hometown: Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (somewhere in Canada)
Undergrad: McGill University
Med School: Albany Medical College
Favorite Beach: Locally = Willard for ease of access—incredible to be able to be on the beach within 5 minutes of leaving work! Other favorites: Drake Bay-Costa Rica, Tofino-BC, Mustique-The Grenadines, Nobadeer-Nantucket, Kailua Bay-Oahu, Nha Trang-Vietnam, any island in the San Blas Archipelago-Panama, Cap d’Antibes-French Mediterranean, Mykonos Island-Greece… a sampling of the favorites. I'm pretty fond of beaches and travel :)
Closest brush with a famous person: I once hung out with J.K. Rowling and chatted about wizardry
Why MMC: I can’t say enough incredible things about this program: from the consistent leadership that knows how to run a great residency, to the collegial, thoughtful and collaborative teaching, to my amazing resident colleagues. Jana our residency coordinator is the best. Portland is a "hip" city in an awesome part of New England that offers four seasons, beautiful beaches and great mountains all in close proximity. The combination of people, location, and quality here is simply exceptional. I am thrilled to be training at Maine Med and look forward to a wonderful 3 years!
