Resident Bio:

I was a rambunctious kid born and raised in Sacramento, California. I did archaeology at the beach resort that is UC Santa Barbara , before finally deciding to enter medicine. Simply, I find medicine fascinating. I still geek out on anatomy and physiology, and love hearing about new medical breakthroughs. I didn’t know medicine would send me from Australia to New Orleans, and now to the beautiful and serene Seattle. I can’t think of a better place to train. It’s a powerhouse institution with great faculty and resources, and even better co-residents.
