Hometown: Dover, MA
College: Wellesley College
Medical School: Drexel University College of Medicine
Residency/Fellowship: Tufts Medical Center
Academic Interests: I love the opportunities to teach at the medical school, as well as being involved with curriculum and educational experience for the IM residents. Even better is the opportunity to engage learners during preclinical years, work with them again on the wards, and then watch them grow as residents, chiefs, fellows and on. Similarly, I thrive on longitudinal relationships with my primary care patients, and the privilege of helping people improve their physical and mental health alike.
Why I chose Tufts: The people, great support, ability to take care of people from all walks of life, opportunities to be involved in medical education at multiple levels.
Things I do for fun: Exercise (Peloton), create food with veggies from our garden, dance, hike with family including small children and our dog, explore all of the amazing destinations in New England.
