MGHfC and Me: I’m one of the categorical Peds residents and one of the things that drew me to MGHfC was the level of autonomy we get as residents! I always feel as though I am at the center of providing care and have felt incredibly close to my patients, knowing that they trust me to make decisions, facilitate care and communicate effectively. In addition, the camaraderie among the residents is truly something special, and something I first noticed when I interviewed here. My colleagues are smart, hard working and fun loving individuals who focus on compassion, wellness and support one another through the highs and the lows of life! 

Fun Fact: My life pretty much revolves around food! I particularly enjoy making my own ice cream from scratch and experimenting with different flavors.  My latest creation: goat cheese and honey ice cream for a weird savory twist!
