Hobbies/Outside Interests: I enjoy running, horseback riding, rock climbing, painting, cooking, and reading.

Favorite things about/to do/to eat in Charlottesville: I love going to the Farmer’s Market at IX Art Park!

Why did you choose UVA? I chose UVA because everyone I spoke to seemed to be genuinely happy. The training sounded excellent, the program was just the right size for me, and Charlottesville seemed wonderful!

Anesthesiology Interests: I’m interested in critical care, although that may change when I am exposed to other areas of anesthesia.

Favorite Rotation: I’ve only had two so far, so my answer may change, but I liked ACS best.

What’s the best piece of career advice you ever got?: Use your failures as opportunities to learn and grow.
