What do you like about Detroit?
Detroit is a city with a lot of history and this is a time in which I feel like a lot of changes are being made that will determine how the city evolves with time. I enjoy the pride and energy of the city and people here, the unique blend of cultures in the area, and still have a lot to see! There is no shortage of things to do in Detroit and the Metro area.

What do you like about the WSU Med/Peds Program?
I have yet to have a boring day! Our faculty, especially Med-Peds are incredible: intelligent, and well-read, yet down to Earth; my classmates and colleagues in the program are a source of support and relief; and our patients come from a wide-range of backgrounds and present a wealth of learning opportunities - I gain great fulfillment from serving them.

Fun fact: I don't believe in boredom!
