Personal Statement: I was drawn to the residency training program at WashU because of the exceptional clinical and surgical training, abundant research opportunities, and supportive faculty. Completing my residency at WashU will provide me a strong foundation as a future academic clinician. In my spare time,    I enjoy judging figure skating competitions, cooking and grilling, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on my St. Louis Cardinals.
