Brief Bio: It was really important to me in choosing my fellowship program to stay near to our families. While I knew Boston was close to many of our family members, I was elated to discover that MGHFC felt like home for more than just its geographic location. MGHFC not only felt like the right place for me, it felt like I would be joining a new family. I have always been passionate about my work and actively committed to my research, and it was invigorating to find that the people of MGHFC were equally passionate and committed to their endeavors. For me, MGHFC has the perfect combination of a strong clinical program in pediatric critical care and an abundance of research opportunities, all wrapped in a supportive and welcoming community. In addition to my pediatric work, I love to run, hike, ski, and will hopefully be able to sail again being on the water. When I’m home, I prefer cuddling with our puppy, Woodford.
