What drew you to UNC?

I could tell that everyone interacted like family when I interviewed here. All of the residents seemed to have such close-knit community. At our pre-interview dinner (In-person pre-COVID interviews), the faculty seemed to know the residents and their families very well and were even talking to the residents’ significant others alone. This familial feel to a program was very important to me, and it has held true since being in residency here.

What do you love most about the Triangle?

It is a very easy place to live with plenty of good food, breweries, and outdoor activities. The Triangle is a highly educated area and is close to both beaches and mountains. And it almost always smells like pine trees.

What are your career aspirations?

I am completing dual fellowships in cardiothoracic and obstetric anesthesiology at the University of Michigan with plans to participate in the growing field of “cardio-obstetrics.”

What is your go-to fun fact?

I can’t hula hoop or follow along with a beat.

If I weren’t an anesthesiologist, I would be:

A translator. I love learning about other languages and how different, yet similar, other languages are to one another.
