I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and I attended Northwestern University for my undergraduate years and Central Michigan University for medical school. I love to play basketball and will always root for my Chicago Bulls even as we continue to "rebuild" every. single. year. My favorite hobby is eating and I stand firm that deep dish pizza is without a doubt the superior slice. I also enjoy traveling and will jump at any opportunity to use my passport to explore and experience the world. In the academic realm, I am interested in both EMS and Global Health. I hope to explore both areas during residency and ultimately plan to pursue a fellowship in one of those fields.
