"I ran the Chicago Marathon!"
"I was born and raised in St. Louis and left to do my undergraduate and medical school at the University of Missouri.  I am thrilled to return to my hometown to pursue my training in OB/GYN!  As an intern, I am excited to further explore the field and develop my career interests.  I am primarily interested in becoming a generalist, but am also open to pursuing a fellowship in Maternal Fetal Medicine."

What is your favorite part of being a resident at SLU?
"My favorite part of being a resident at SLU is the supportive environment to develop myself as a clinician and surgeon.  My co-residents are smart, driven, supportive, and hilarious.  I genuinely look forward to coming to work everyday because I love this job and the people who I am surrounded by.  Additionally, I feel that this Program has the resources in place for its residents to pursue fellowships and/or be well prepared to enter the workforce as a competent generalist with its robust surgical and clinical training."
