Hi and welcome to VCU Pediatrics!

I am originally from outside of Philadelphia so I am a die-hard Philly sports fan...Go Birds! I went south for undergrad and med school to the University of South Carolina. I love the southern culture, warm weather, shrimp and grits and especially the Gamecocks! I met my fiancé, who is a mechanical engineer, in Columbia. We have a Chihuahua-Pit mix named Otis who keeps life interesting. My fiancé is from Richmond so we are super excited to be back. There are tons of fun things to do in Richmond! I personally enjoy activities on the James River, VMFA and finding new food spots.

When I interviewed at VCU, I loved the residents and felt like the 2-week schedule would keep things interesting and be great for my mental health - and that is definitely the case. My co-residents are wonderful and I can go to them with anything. I've had the opportunity to do several procedures as an intern, which was important to me when I was on the interview trail. Everyone is also very excited about the new Children's Hospital, which will provide us the ability to care for more kiddos! Lots of progress has been made on the building in the short time I've been here. It is going to be gorgeous! I love RVA and VCU and can't imagine myself anywhere else. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. We hope to see you on the interview trail!
