Personal Statement: It is a tremendous honor for me to join Washington University for otolaryngology residency and to train with this outstanding league of leaders and mentors of our field. I loved my time here as an undergraduate and a researcher, and I am thrilled to return as a resident physician to partake of strong surgical training, robust research opportunities, and a collaborative learning environment. In my personal time, I play tennis and piano, am trained in tap and ballet, and enjoy sketching and traveling.
