What do you like about Detroit?
I've loved seeing the city change so drastically since arriving here two years ago. There's always something new to try or explore, and there's a mixture of new and old that I haven't seen in too many other places. I also love getting food from a friend's urban farm.

What do you like about the WSU Med/Peds Program?
I love the cohesion between residents. When we're in the hospital together, we've always looked out for one another or provided solid sounding boards. I also love working with our faculty: especially Dr. Ayers and Dr. Roxas. The expertise and the approach they bring have really changed my approach to patient care.

Fun fact:
I'm a rugby champion in France. When I lived in Aix-en-Provence, I joined a team and we won our national university tournament.
