Favorite Restaurant/Take-out

I am still learning about the restaurants in the area but so far I’ve enjoyed Mediterranean Deli.

If I Wasn’t a Pathologist, I Would Be a…

Realistically, some sort of biosciences researcher. Fun answer: a cartoonist!

On My Next Weekend Not on Call, I Would Be…

Checking out some of the cool museums and coffee shops in the Triangle area.

Favorite Thing About Pathology

I like that pathologists serve as a bridge between clinical medicine and the laboratory. I feel like pathology combines the intellectual stimulation of working in a basic sciences lab with the sense of tangible, day-to-day purpose that comes from providing clinicians with answers so they can help their patients!
