First Year Ophthalmology Resident
Where are you from?
Where did you attend Medical School?
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Favorite memory of Medical School?
I have two! 1. Directing and singing in our “Second Look” welcome video for prospective students! It was such a fun way to connect with my extremely talented class and give incoming students a glimpse of our community. 2. Honoring a tradition of post-exam brunch with my classmates-turned-friends 🙂
Favorite memory of your intern residency year?
Building friendships with my colleagues that I am sure will last well beyond residency.
Why did you choose Ophthalmology?
Among many other reasons, I was drawn to the variety of pathology, intricacy of surgeries, and promotion of a healthy work-life balance. Plus – my experience has been that everyone in ophthalmology is so nice and willing to teach! Love it!
Why did you choose WashU?
I completed an away rotation here as a fourth year medical student. I really connected with the community here and felt that I would not only have the exposure I needed to become any type of specialist I wanted to be, but also the genuine support from the amazing faculty and residents here. I was blown away by my experience and so, so happy to have matched here.
How did you survive during quarantine?
By leaning on my very supportive family and friends 🙂
What are you most looking forward to during your residency?
Learning and growing into my career as a true specialist, alongside the BEST class!
What are you not looking forward to during your residency?
Missing out on big/fun events with my family and friends.
What specialty are you most interested in?
I am still undifferentiated 🙂 Open to everything!
