Hello! I am a New Englander at heart and I am very excited to come back home for residency! I was born in Ct, raised in MA, and went to high school in RI. I went to Northeastern University for undergrad and studied Neuroscience. Before medical school I wanted to get some hands-on experience and I took two gap years to do research and to work as a scribe. Prior to starting medical school I had a bias for family medicine because my own Family Doctor showed me the benefits of holistic full-spectrum primary care. Medical school took me to the lovely state of Ohio and this transition continued to foster my love of family medicine. I received a scholarship after my M1 year for a family medicine internship at an FQHC and this started my love of working with the underserved. I also completed Tulane University's course in Culinary medicine to combine two of my loves: food and medicine. During my time at Ohio state I was involved in advocacy work through Med Students for Choice and LGBTQ&Allies in Medicine. I also completed an extracurricular course in point of care ultrasound through the department of Emergency Medicine, that I hope to continue to build on during residency. I am passionate about women's health and did research with the department of OBGYN on Pap-smears and follow-up. I did my senior advanced competency in Global Health and spent a month in Ho Ch Minh Vietnam working with the department of Oncology. Brown was my top residency choice since the beginning of this crazy residency process. Brown has a reputation for producing strong full-spectrum practitioners with a focus on community advocacy. This program aligns my love of academic medicine with strong community engagement and commitment to the underserved. It is a program in an urban environment that has both strong OBGYN and inpatient experiences. And, they have a well-established Global Health Program. If that wasn't enough, on my interview day the residents I met were happy, passionate, down to earth, and so proud of their program. I am honored to have matched into this program and I can't wait for the road ahead! I am bringing with me to RI, my dog Otis (who is very excited to be able to frolic in the ocean again) and cat Mia. Outside of medicine I love eating Italian food, cooking elaborate meals, reading, true crime (podcasts, books, shows), hiking, spending time at the beach, dancing, traveling, and spending time with the people I love.
