An ideal day outside the hospital would include a leisurely brunch, any combination of hiking/biking/running, seeing friends and family, and finally curling up with a good book or the latest Netflix series. I also enjoy baking desserts that contain chocolate, and my goal is to adopt a rescue dog by the end of residency.

While many neurologic subspecialties appeal to me, I am still exploring my academic interests. Whatever the clinical focus, I would like to pursue quality improvement initiatives and health equity & global health projects as well. As a former English major, I also hope to incorporate narrative medicine into my practice.
