In my spare time, I do a bit of writing, including contributing to the Huffington Post, Boston Herald, and New York Times. I enjoy taking my dog to the park, and telling my husband what a great wife he has. I also like to run extremely slowly.

I’m a travel junkie, so naturally I’m excited about neurology in low-resource settings.  I want to learn how patients can be diagnosed and treated in countries where basic imaging and labs aren’t available.  I also like learning how neurologic diseases interplay with cultural beliefs, like kuru in New Guinea and seizures in Ancient Rome.
