About Me


I bought a house at the start of intern year and have had a lot of fun updating and working on it. I also like to try new restaurants and breweries around Indy.

Why did you choose IUSM EM?

I loved the people I worked with when I rotated through the department. Everyone was so easy to get along with, and it really helped the shift to fly by. Also, Indy is such a great city. There's always something going on or somethig new to try.

Fun Fact

I got pulled on stage in Las Vegas to get hypnotized. It didn't work, but I didn't want to be the jerk who let the audience know it wasn't real. So I ended up having to lip syncing Shania Twayne on stage as instructed under my "hypnosis" in front of a couple hundred people.
