Fav thing about UAMS Internal Medicine Residency? The people!

Fav thing about living in Little Rock or Arkansas? The outdoors and the food!

If you weren’t a doctor, what would you be? TV critic

Fav show to binge watch? So many, so here’s some of my top recent favs: Kim’s Convenience, Schitt’s Creek, Never Have I Ever, The Good Place, Superstore, The Bold Type

Fun fact about yourself that not a lot of people know? I don’t ever cry when I cut onions.

Anything else you want the world/future applicants to know about yourself? My husband (who is an ENT resident) and I got two beautiful rescue dogs, Midge and Ruby, during my intern year and they’re the best. Little Rock is extremely dog friendly!
