Undergrad: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Med School: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Before med school: Firefighter-Paramedic in Durham, NC.
Favorite Food: Whatever I am cooking. For lunch today I made a niçoise-style salad with seared salmon and pickled Peruvian peppers, a flat white, and mineral water. No glass of a crisp mineral-rich unwooded chardonnay, cuz I’ve got a shift this afternoon.
Closest brush with a famous person: I sat next to Andy Perron at conference 2 weeks ago. He really is that tall.
Celebrity I most resemble: Ben Stiller
Why MMC: I transferred to MMC for LOVE in July 2017. My fiancé and I got engaged in November 2016 and decided Midwest-New England was too long distance for us as an engaged couple both in residency. My partner is a wicked smart resident, here in New England, training to be an advanced abortion provider. Part of Midwest I was in was too anti-abortion for good training for us both there so we looked for a New England EM transfer spot for me. I found EVERYTHING I was looking for at MMC. Great faculty, exceptional co-residents, close knit ED staff, well-resourced and organized department, and idyllic surroundings. I may have thought to transfer for personal reason but I am already adamant I am a clinically stronger not just happier resident here at MMC.
