Personal Interests

Running & Biking, listening to audiobooks and podcasts, playing board games, trying to cook meals and then having them turn out yucky but then eating them anyway because that’s what I made

Why UIC IM/EM?

I was looking for an IM/EM program rooted in the principles of social justice and health equity. And after meeting the residents, faculty, and program leadership on interview day, I knew I had found my people and my place.

What are you looking forward to the most?

I’m looking forward to getting to know Chicago! This includes getting to know my co-residents, finding all the best biking and running trails, eating and drinking my way through the city, and scoping out all the best bookshops.
