Career Plans: Adult Cardiology with plans on Adult Congenital Fellowship to tie in my Med/Peds training
Favorite Aspect of Residency at MCW: The residents! I have developed such close friendships during my residency here and was excited to be accepted for the chief position to spend another year with them. I enjoy the wide variety of patients we serve and the different settings we experience, especially the VA. We also have a great balance between autonomy and having layers of help when needed.

One Thing You Must Try While Living in Wisconsin: So many great things but my top local favorites include Vennture brew coffee/beer and the Bluemoon popsicle from Pete's Pop!
Interesting Fact About Me: I was a gymnast from the age of 3-21 and competed for the University of Iowa. The balance beam was my favorite and best event! I still go to my hometown gym from time to time to see what skills I can still do.
