Hometown: Fairport, NY
Bio: I grew up in western New York, just outside of Rochester. I attended Cornell University for my undergraduate studies where I was also a member and captain of the women’s basketball team. Following my graduation, I returned home to Rochester for two years, where I stayed busy working in research and development at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, helping out as an assistant basketball coach for the women’s teams at St. John Fisher College and Fairport High School, and refereeing youth soccer. These opportunities enabled me to pursue some of my passions before heading to metro Detroit to start medical school at Oakland University William Beaumont (OUWB) School of Medicine. Throughout medical school, I was drawn to family medicine due to its broad scope of practice and the ability to build relationships with patients and families of all ages and backgrounds.
Why Memorial: I knew that Memorial was the perfect fit for my future career aspirations—a rigorous training program providing broad-spectrum care while also serving a broad and diverse patient population in South Bend.
Clinical interests: Full spectrum care focused on underserved populations, sports medicine
Hobbies: Playing and watching basketball and soccer, baking, running and exercise classes
