Extracurricular Interests: I love hiking in Virginia and taking trips into DC to try new brunch spots. I also used to do gymnastics and enjoy staying active.

Why I Chose Inova: Inova Children's provides a wonderfully unique environment to practice pediatric hospital medicine. It has the rigor and access of an academic program blended with the patient-centric drive of a community institution. Based on its location, the hospital serves a diverse and varied patient population. In addition to these program characteristics, I was absolutely drawn to the program leadership and support. I wanted a program with personalized didactics and project development. I have been thrilled to have both curricular and personal mentoring from Program Director Dr. Halmon and Associate Program Director Dr. DeVeau-Rosen, along with personalized project guidance from Dr. Courtney Port. The entire pediatric hospital team is engaging, receptive, and supportive of my personal learning as a fellow.
