School: Albany Medical College
Hometown: Slingerlands, NY
Professional Interests: I am most interested in general pediatrics. I also have some interest in hospitalist medicine and emergency medicine. I hope to get involved in research related to childhood obesity.
Personal Interests: Anything outdoors! I spent my undergraduate years fly fishing in Maine at Colby College. I also got to rock climb in the local gyms and outside at the gunks while I was in medical school in Albany. In the winter I have enjoyed getting back into skiing over the past few years, with all of the great options in upstate New York. Also, pizza and sushi.
What drew you to our training program? After completing medical school at Albany Medical College I knew I wanted to stay for residency. The residents and attendings that I worked with were all so supportive of one another and made for a great learning environment. The wide catchment area of AMC provides extremely diverse patients and pathology. We also have program leadership that works to make tangible changes rapidly if things need to be improved. Plus, the outdoor opportunities in upstate New York are endless. Hundreds of mountains to hike in the Adirondacks and Catskills. Countless streams and lakes to explore. Additionally, great restaurants and breweries are available throughout Albany and in the surrounding cities like Troy and Saratoga.
