Bio: "I’m from Carson City, NV and I attended Boston University for undergrad and the University of Nevada in Reno for med school. I chose Mizzou because everyone here is so friendly, laid-back, and approachable. From residents to attendings, to even the chair and support staff, everyone here is just so darn welcoming! This is my first time living in the Midwest, and let me tell you, Midwestern hospitality is a real thing. Columbia itself is a gem of a college town that's right smack-dab in the middle of the country. My favorite part about the Derm residency program here is the breadth of hands-on experiences you can immediately delve right into from the outset of residency (derm surg, dermpath, cutaneous onc, peds derm, etc.) on such a kind, grateful, diverse patient population from across the state. Personally, I'm just interested in exploring all the field has to offer and am striving to be the best dermatologist I can be. In my spare time, I love being spontaneous and am always down to try something new, somewhere new, with fun people! Some of my hobbies include concerts, trivia, breweries, lifting, comics, and philosophy."
