I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and went to Tufts University where I studied English literature and poetry. I completed a two year post-baccalaureate program and subsequently enrolled in veterinary school at The University of Pennsylvania. In my spare time, I love going to the gym and powerlifting, watching HGTV, and spending time with my husband, Brad. I have three sassy and opinionated cats: Patisse, Czarina, and Elvis.
Clinical Areas of Interest
Following my internship, I hope to pursue a residency in dermatology. My areas of interest include immune-mediated diseases, the treatment of ear disease, and anti-microbial selection and stewardship.
Why Do You Work at Friendship?
Prior to applying to the match, I spent time as an extern at FHA. To me, the internship program had everything I was looking for: excellent mentorship and hands-on experience, the opportunity to rotate through many specialty services, and a diverse caseload. I’m very excited to spend my first year as a doctor at Friendship!
