Hometown: Portola Valley, CA

Personal Statement: I grew up in Northern California, went to WashU for undergrad, and then the University of Pittsburgh for med school. I am excited to be returning to my alma mater for my residency. I knew that WashU would be an excellent place to train before I came to my interview, but getting to meet the other residents and attendings really made it stand out as an exceptional place.

I can’t wait to revisit my favorite spots in St. Louis – the climbing gyms, restaurants like Seoul Taco and Pappy’s, and of course Forest Park.
