Why did you select the UW Residency program for your training?

You can’t beat UW’s combination of expert faculty, well-rounded training, and genuine comradery. Through the interview process, it was clear how much the faculty and residents loved working with one another, and I knew I would feel at home here. Plus, Madison is awesome!

What do you like to do outside of work?

I thrive off a good routine. I like to go to bed early, sit with a cup of coffee and a book and watch the sunrise, spend time with my husband Jake and friends, and push myself a little too hard in endurance sports. I also enjoy spending time outside, whether by running, skiing, hiking, walking, or just sitting at the terrace with friends!
