Where are you from?
Where did you attend Medical School?
Favorite memory of Medical School?
Surgical skills training with my mentors, spending time in the operating room, and seeing pediatric ophthalmology patients in the children’s hospital and clinic.
Favorite memory of your intern residency year?
Everything from our early exposure to ophthalmology during our integrated internship! In addition, learning critical care medicine from the VA intensive care faculty on my ICU rotation during the winter Omicron peak.
Why did you choose Ophthalmology?
The disease processes of the eye are fascinating! Ophthalmology encompasses both surgical interventions and clinical management, with lots of opportunity for innovation and research.
Why did you Choose WashU?
The faculty’s commitment to resident training and scholarship, kind and supportive residents, and world-class clinical exposure.
How did you survive during quarantine?
Zoom ballet practice and a portable ballet barre, virtual 5K races, and kayaking.
What are you most looking forward to during your residency?
Building my clinical knowledge and skills, forming lifelong relationships with faculty and co-residents, and providing excellent patient care.
What are you not looking forward to during your residency?
During PGY-2, at least one member of our class will be on call at a given time, which makes it harder to plan class outings!
What specialty are you most interested in?
Looking forward to exploring everything!
