Brianna Albert, DO
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine
Hey guys! I was born and raised in Middleboro, MA. My college years were spent in Boston at Northeastern University where I studied Behavioral Neuroscience and participated in the co-op program. After college, I worked as an ABA Teacher Assistant at the May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities by day and bartended by night. I eventually ventured to Western PA to start medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. I then moved to Buffalo, NY for my clinical rotations. I will miss the city of good neighbors and their wings, but I’m thrilled to be back home. I’m so excited to join the Floating Family and have the opportunity to pursue my residency in Child Neurology at Tufts! In my spare time, you can find me at the beach, in the gym, dancing, playing video games, baking cookies/eating the cookie dough, or hiking with my husband and our two furbabies, Gatsby and Betsy.

Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University
Hi! I’m Stephanie, I was born in Israel, but spent most of my childhood in Charlottesville, Virginia. I attended the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA for undergrad. Following graduation, I spent five months working in a lab at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. Shortly after returning to the States, I got a job in a lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. I spent three years living in (and loving) Boston, while studying the JC virus. I ventured down to CT for medical school at the Frank H Netter MD School of Medicine. And now, after four years, I’m thrilled to return to Boston and to join the wonderful community at the Floating Hospital. Outside of the hospital, I love to be outdoors, whether that’s taking in a view on a mountaintop or having a picnic on the Common.

Robert Larner, M.D., College of Medicine at the University of Vermont
Hello everyone! I grew up in a suburb of Boston, MA (Newton - specifically Newton North, go Tigers!). I moved out to Amherst, MA, to attend UMASS Amherst from 2006-2010, where I studied Neuroscience. Following graduation, I returned to the Eastern side of the state, and lived in Brighton, MA, for 6 years. During that time, I worked at Boston Children's Hospital in Orthopaedics as a research coordinator. I realized my dream of going to medical school in 2016 when I moved to Burlington, VT, to attend UVM. While I loved living up north, I am thrilled to be coming back home for residency!

Hi! I grew up just outside of Boston in Milton, Massachusetts. I then moved to Philly to attend the University of Pennsylvania, where I studied Biological Basis of Behavior and Hispanic Studies, and played clarinet in Penn Band. After college, I came back to Boston and worked at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for a few years before heading to New York for medical school at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. While I will miss NYC, I'm so excited to be coming home to Boston to join the Floating family! In my free time I love to travel, go to the beach (even during the winter), watch reality tv, try new restaurants, and explore the city that I'm in!
Alexandra (Alex) Miller, DO
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine
Hi everyone! My name is Alex Miller and I am from Buffalo, NY. For my undergrad I decided to venture to New England and attended Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. At Holy Cross, I obtained a degree in Math with a pre-med concentration. After college I moved to Boston to get my Masters at Boston University, and stayed to do research. This is when I really fell in love with Boston! I then left to start medical school at LECOM in Western PA. When choosing a specialty, I realized that I had been unknowingly preparing to be a pediatrician my entire life- both in my jobs and volunteering, I always wanted to be working with kids! Pediatrics was the perfect fit. After living and falling in love with all things Boston (except the Patriots- Go Bills), I knew I wanted to head back to Boston for residency. I am so excited to have the opportunity to pursue my residency at Tufts and to join the Floating Family! In my free time, I enjoy being outside, trying any and all exercise classes, binge watching Netflix, and spending time with my husband and our dog Jack (who we are both obsessed with).
Alex Nanchanatt, MD
Drexel University College of Medicine
Hello! I was born and raised in New Jersey. Growing up in northern NJ I enjoyed playing baseball and basketball and rooting for many of the New York sports teams. I stayed in New Jersey for undergrad at Monmouth University by the Jersey Shore where I studied Biology and minored in Chemistry. After graduating I went into industry before attending medical school in Philadelphia at Drexel University. I have always enjoyed teaching and mentoring others, and I developed my interest in pediatrics during medical school. Living in Philly for the last few years made me appreciate city living and I am excited to move to Boston and train at Floating Hospital. Living in Boston I am excited to see the Yankees beat the Red Sox a few times!
Jessica Price, MD, PhD
Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons
Hi! I grew up in the South in Nashville, Tennessee. I attended Bryn Mawr College, a women’s college outside Philly, where I was a Biology major studying genetics and developmental biology. After college, I spent two years living in Washington, D.C, doing research at the NIH in the National Human Genome Research Institute. I studied cancer genomics including cancer with ethnic disparity. I then moved to New York City where I earned my M.D./Ph.D. from Columbia University. My Ph.D. research focused on metastasis signaling in cancer. After I graduated, I spent a year conducting research in pediatric surgery, investigating congenital disorders and fluid administration in critically ill post-operative and trauma patients. Living in NYC has been amazing since I enjoy the performing arts, museums, and baseball. I am looking forward to exploring Boston's museums and seeing the Boston Ballet. I am excited to be a part of the Tufts Floating family!
Amira Ramadan, MD
I was born in Prague but raised in beautiful, warm Egypt. I graduated and completed a Pediatric residency at the School Of Medicine at Ain Shams University in Egypt. I earned a master degree studying the adrenal reserve in children with tuberculosis and Ph.D. degree studying atypical pathogens among community acquired pneumonia in pediatrics. My career then brought me to the United States where I pursued an interest in research in Asthma, Allergy and Immunology division at Boston Children’s Hospital. After that, I transitioned back to my passion of clinical care and pursued a fellowship training in pediatric endocrinology at University of North Carolina. I am excited to be back in Boston and thrilled to be joining the Pediatric residency team at Tufts for the next two years! In my free time, I enjoy cooking new recipes, painting and enjoy being outdoors with my husband and friends.
Cassandra Scott, MD
Tufts University School of Medicine
Born NYC and raised in the suburbs, and part of a pretty eclectic bunch. I'm half-French, half-born-and-bred-New Yorker, and the product of a biology teacher and a computer engineer. Naturally, I went to McGill University in Montreal and The University of Edinburgh in Scotland to study computer science and biology before making my debut as a medical student at Tufts University School of Medicine. During my time here, I've become passionate about sex and relationship education, medical student and resident mental health, and preventive psychiatric care. I am so excited to continue my training in the Triple Board program at Tufts with some of the most incredible mentors I've ever had. When I'm not at Tufts, I work on far too many knitting projects, bake bread, and cook new meals with my ever-expanding collection of kitchen supplies. When I'm not doing those things, I spend a lot of time going on walks with my husband, Gregor, who is a recent immigrant from Scotland getting used to New England life. Between the two of us, we have a large collection of stuffed animal friends, including a beluga whale named Keith, a penguin named Pingwing, and an owl named Q-Tip.
Allison Seats, MD
Creighton University School of Medicine
I'm originally from Golden, CO where I grew up skiing, hiking and playing volleyball. After high school, I attended Creighton University and majored in Biology with a minor in Spanish. During this time, I developed an interest in medicine and global health in the Dominican Republic through yearly medical service trips. After my graduating, I returned to Colorado to earn my Masters in Biomedical Sciences from Regis University. Shortly after, I headed back to Omaha for medical school at Creighton. I spent my first two years in Omaha but then decided to pick up and move to Phoenix, Arizona to Creighton's regional campus. That's where I discovered my shared love of pediatrics and child psychiatry. I'm thrilled to move cross country once again to further explore medicine through the triple board program at Tufts Medical Center!
Julia Staschen, MD
Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine
I was born in a small town in Germany and moved to the United States with my family when I was in elementary school. We spent time in Virginia and California before settling down in Kennett Square, a small suburb outside of Philadelphia. For college I attended Tulane University in New Orleans where I studied neuroscience. After graduating, I worked in research and as a medical scribe before starting at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. I love baking (Nutella flower bread is a fan favorite), Star Wars, and hanging out with my two cats, Honey and Bowie. I’m very excited to move to Boston with my fiancé and to join the Floating family!
Kaleigh Tomkinson, DO
University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine
Hello! Although I have called Boston my home for a long time now, I actually grew up in Littleton, Colorado and made my way back to the East Coast for college. I went to WPI in Worcester, Ma and then first became part of the Tufts family when I did my Master of Biomedical Sciences here. I then went off to Maine for medical school at the University of New England, but I am so happy to be back at home and once again a part of the Tufts family. I enjoy cooking, trying various workout classes, skiing, and exploring Boston with friends. On the weekends I spend a lot of time with my family who all live in the area. I am so happy to settle down in the city I call home, start this new chapter as a pediatric resident, and join the Floating Family!
Annie Wang, MD
Boston University School of Medicine
I grew up in the East San Francisco Bay Area and enjoyed dancing, playing piano and violin, and tennis. My family spent a lot of time outdoors, from hiking along the California coast to skiing the mountains around Lake Tahoe. For college, I moved to the Midwest to attend Washington University in St. Louis, where I majored in biochemistry. After graduation, I spent a year working in a dermatology practice in the Boston suburbs, during which I explored all that New England has to offer. I decided to stay in the area and attend Boston University School of Medicine, and I’ve come to love Boston and its people through my experiences in medical school. I’m thrilled to stay in this amazing city and join the Floating Family for residency!
