About me


I enjoy soccer, kickboxing, reading, watching Detroit sports, playing with my adorable dog, being with my husband and friends, watching trashy TV shows, wine tasting, and baking. 

Why did you choose IUSM EM?

The family feel really sold it for me, and the faculty are amazing! It's laid back with enough clinical volume and variety to make us fantastic emergency physicians.

Fun Fact

I know all the lyrics to Billy Joel's "We didn't start the fire."
