Hometown: Boise, Idaho
Medical school: University of Utah School of Medicine
Hobbies: You can usually find me outside hiking, backpacking, rock and ice climbing, mountain biking, backcountry/alpine/cross country skiing, whitewater kayaking, scuba diving, spearfishing, fly fishing, and hunting. I hoard duplicates of any gear I can get my hands on and I’m always ready to take beginners out! I’m also passionate about cooking, outdoor photography, and playing jazz upright bass.
What excites you about EM at UVM: I was absolutely blown away by my away rotation. Every single attending and resident I worked with felt like the nicest, most encouraging mentors I had interacted with in all of medical school. The didactics, sim, and cadaver lab experiences were like nothing I’ve ever seen, and my on-shift exposure included higher acuity and variety than I would expect to see in a city ten times the size.
Future plans: Become the most versatile EM doc possible to thrive in any hospital setting, overcome my fear of ice skating, and raise some chickens.
