MGfC and Me: Though I'm originally from the West Coast, having lived in the East Coast for over 5 years now, I've grown to love the seasons (especially fall). I was looking to stay in the East Coast for fellowship and MGH was my #1 choice for the amazing people I got to meet on interview day, the family like environment while providing exceptional training, and the commitment to evidence based care, along with the fantastic location (my sister is also in Boston). I was also lucky enough to work with a MGH alumnus who is one of my role models! I also look forward to developing my research skills in the next three years. In my free time, I enjoy baking, jogging, hiking, trying out new restaurants and spending time with my husband and kitties.
